  1. For cooking casseroles, unlike pilaf and other rice dishes, absolutely any kind of rice is suitable – round, long-grain, elite and cheapest.
  2. One part of the rice is taken two parts of the liquid. If the casserole is prepared with minced meat, you can use broth, including cubes, as this liquid..
  3. It is best to cook rice in a cauldron or other thick-walled pot. At the bottom of the dish you can add a little oil and then pour the rice and pour it with water – so it will turn out crumbly. But for casseroles, this quality is undesirable..
  4.  By the time ordinary white rice is cooked 15 minutes. After removing from the heat, the dishes with rice should be covered with a towel and allowed to stand warm for a few more minutes..
  5. Rice for casseroles can be cooked in advance, it will remain in the refrigerator for a couple of days.
