The rice experiment
For some weird reasons, I've decided to try to make my own rice crispies today... Without a recipe! Of course, I failed...
I simply put a handful of rice grains into a skillet in which I heated a little oil and waited for it to puff like pop corn would. The grain did puff a little but nothing like what I was expecting so I waited a bit more stirring occasionally until the rice turned brown... I stopped the whole experiment at that point and drained the rice on a paper towel... Then I seasoned it with some salt and tried to chew on a few grains... To my surprise not only was it fabulously crunchy and chewable but it was also delicious! It tasted a bit like roasted nuts and I believe I can use it the same way (as a snack, on salads...). My partner finished all of my failed 'rice crispies' in a few minutes... I'll make more one of these days.
