A question about a recipe: Bhutanese Red Rice, Millet, and Oat Breakfast Pudding
I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Bhutanese Red Rice, Millet, and Oat Breakfast Pudding" from gingerroot. It says:
"In a small saucepan (or electric rice cooker, as I did) combine Bhutanese red rice, millet, water, cinnamon stick, cardamom and bay leaves; allow grains/spices to soak for at least 20 minutes before cooking. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, being careful mixture does not boil over. Cook until grains are tender, about 25 minutes. Pick out whole spices and discard. Cool and transfer cooked grains to an airtight container and refrigerate overnight."
I'd love to use my fuzzy logic rice cooker for this, therefore I have a few questions about time, liquid, and heat to do this successfully. Do I use the "mixed grains" setting on my fuzzy logic rice cooker? Do I use any other settings? Do I use the called for amount of liquid, or do I fill it to the ~ rough amount mark on the rice cooker? Do I use the same time amounts? Or do I allow my fuzzy logic rice cooker to "do it's thing"? Please help me use this great tool so I can concentrate on the other dishes. :)
p.s. Is there any way to begin incorporating rice cooker directions/instructions for some of the obvious dishes like risottos, jams, and polentas? I'd really appreciate it.
