Considering the results you're getting with medium or high heat, I would suggest you try low heat. If it skips past the stage you're looking for, it's probably cooking much too quickly - you might occasionally take it off the heat as well, to further draw out the window of when you can find it to be just toasted, not burnt. In addition, look for other ...

I cook brown rice in a pot. First I cook ingredients in oil (onion, tomato, chili, potato etc), than I add twice as much water as rice, i.e. if I have one cup of rice, I add 2 cups water, when the water boils I put the rice in the water and cook for 10 to 15 on medium heat. When little or no water remains, I lower the heat and cook for ten more minutes....

Mostly, it will take longer to cook your recipe with brown rice. You will also need to add a bit more water. That's OK, you can do that. Figure about 1/4 extra water (1/4 again above what you had already planned for white rice) and about 1/2 again as much time. Consider your other ingredients - don't mush them all to hell to cook your rice. So, figure 1/4 ...

The Chinese cultural norm is to eat rice with chopsticks. It would be very inconvenient to constantly switch back and forth between eating with chopsticks and a spoon depending upon whether you were eating rice or vegetables or meat. To get around the loose grain problem, you can use the shovel method. You pick up your bowl and use a shoveling motion with ...
