Britain is an island in Europe.End off!

Over a thousand islands in fact.

Yes and like the Galápagos Islands you are on a different evolutionary path than Europe.

Americans Social Security pays more in a month than say a bicycle repairman such as yourself makes in a year in Poland.

You're so ignorant about Poland. Maybe you can use part of the 15 to life that's waiting for you in Florida to learn a little about Poland. Or maybe not, nonces tend not to live long in prison.

Yes, so much rice that Poland exports rice to Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Czechia and Ireland and Italy.
Poland imports its rice in the husk primarily from Cambodia. Netherlands, and Ukraine.

I've noticed that red rice has started to become fashionable in PL.

It's not actually very good however it's a novelty and looks different.

Yes, red rice is a variety of rice that is colored red by its anthocyanin content.
Red rice comes from a unique red bran layer, which gives the rice its distinct auburn color.
There is also black rice, brown which are grown in different parts of the world.

What I don't like about rice in Poland is that now most people buy pre-portioned plastic bags that are boiled.

The rice is not great and I don't like the idea of eating something boiled with plastic....

I prefer the old cheap type imported from Vietnam or Pakistan that comes in paper bags.

yucky plastic bag rice....

I find those to be nasty. If I've got any, I always open the bags and do it the normal way.

red rice

Lower protein content, fewer vitamins and in the countries that produce it, it's less favoured than white rice.

I think you will find quite the opposite of that jon.
Red rice varieties such as Himalayan red rice and and Thai red cargo rice, are deeply pigmented and contain an impressively array of Nutrients and beneficial plant compounds.

This type is higher in protein and fiber than white rice varieties, but where it really excels is in its antioxidant content.

Himalayan red rice and and Tha

Feel free to Google stuff.

Most red rice is grown in parts of Africa where it is seen as a second class product; white rice is preferred for flavour and quality.

In Poland, white rice is always preferred too.

Back at ya jon.

That could be debated too.
You are talking Oryza longistarminata.
Most red rice is from Bhutan and in India and Asia unless we are googling different sources. :-)

plastic bag rice...

These bags are very practical and the rice is always of the same quality after cooking. However, loose long-grain rice can only be achieved by cooking the right amount of rice in the right amount of water, and after cooking, it must remain in the pot for a long time so that it becomes loose when you lift the lid. Even a Chinese person often cannot do this.

I'm talking the stuff in sub Saharan Africa that people use if they can't afford white rice. No googling, however the corner shop here may have some on the bottom shelf.

I've seen it in Poland however it's sold for novelty value. I don't personally recommend it except to add a bit of colour if you want a rice dish to look fancy.

However, loose long-grain rice can only be achieved

Do it the Delia Smith way. Put the kettle on, put some oil in a pan, heat it and add the rice (don't wash it first). Stir and make sure the rice is coated in hot oil. Add some boiling water so it really sizzles and bubbles, add salt, stir once and once only. Turn the pan down to the lowest heat and put the lid on. Should be ready in about 10 mins or so.

Works every time.

This is not something that Asians want in rice, it's supposed to be sticky. I remember eating at a bar at work and there was Polish style rice on the plate. An Asan co-worker saw it and seemed repulsed by it.

My hack for rice (from NHK) is to soak it for about half an hour. Then boil twice as much water as dry rice then add the rice boil for a minute, stir well then reduce heat and cover and in 15 minutes it's done. Not loose but very edible.

Also re Polish people and rice. Many who visit the US for a limited time can't deal with American bread or potatoes and mostly eat rice instead. I've known three or four cases.

Yes jon, that is what I said. SEE

Most red rice is from Bhutan and in India and Asia

That works well with brown rice too.

in 15 minutes

I tend to go for less is more. If it's not quite done you can zip it in the microwave for a minute.

that is what I said. SEE

Boring.

You're now saying that your lesson today on red rice was boring ?
You didn't learn why Polish people don't like the Oryza longistarminata red rice from Africa ?
I have come to the conclusion that Liberals like you don't know how to say, "I was wrong."
In fact I have never heard you admitting that you are wrong.
Boring.

Rice is ok in some soups. And in gołąbkach.

Rice demands back breaking care and attention.

Winter wheat can be planted and forgotten about for close to half a year.

In other words, more time dedicated to contemplating the mysteries of the cosmos.

Try steamed vegetables over it with soy sauce.
I like to dump a can of fried spart and onions over rice with some hot sauce.
There are unlimited recipes for rice.
