Rice is the most common side dish. However, it has many calories, so you should not eat it every day.
The good news is that scientists discovered a way to prepare rice, which halves the number of calories.
As a cup of rice has 200 calories, this discovery could be useful for those who watch daily intake of calories..
Before you add the rice into boiling water, add coconut oil, which should correspond to 3 percent of the weight of the rice. When it is cooked, put it into the fridge for 12 hours.
During the process of boiling rice, starch is converted into glycogen and sugar and later stored as fat. When you add lipids or in this case coconut oil, the amount of easily digestible starch is reduced significantly. According to Dr. Pusparajah Thavarajah, oil changes the structure of starch.
Even after cooling and heating it again, rice remains less calorific.
