Tips:If you have to parboil rice in the microwave, put 1 cup raw rice and 5 cups water in a large dish; boil for 13 minutes on HIGH; drain the water immediately through a colander and place rice under the tap water. Drain well and use. Fried rice comes out very well if the parboiled rice is cooked in advance, keep it under refrigeration for a few hours.
