Preparation:

  1. Take 1 cup of Uncooked Rice & Coconut Oil (Coconut oil contains healthy fats that can change the composition of the starch in rice to reduce calories. Rice is made up of both digestible and resistant starches, and coconut oil increases the resistant starch levels of rice – meaning that fewer calories will be digested).
  2. Pour water based on your rice rquirement in a cooker bowl, once water come to boiling point add 2 tsp of coconut oil & then add rice and let it cook like regular cooking until done.
  3. Transfer cooked rice to storage bowl and refrigerate for atleast 12 hours or more.
  4. Once cooled in refrigerator for 12 hrs then reheat in microwave or on stove and enjoy low carb rice. (The process of heating up already-cooled rice makes it's resistant starch increase even more to cut out at least 100 calories from your serving).
