i didn't wash when i made minute rice but then we got a rice cooker and used non min rice and i wash it it said so and i looked up and yea i do it now.
Plain white rice, yes. I but it in a bowl of water and let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse off the water. It rinses off some of the starch. I do the same for potatoes. Peel them, cut them up then leave them in a bowl of water for a few minute. My family has always done it that way and we are not Hispanic, just country people from the South.
I always wash and trim chicken. Beef, I'll rinse if it looks "slimy" from the package (I don't know how else to describe it. LOL), but I usually just wipe/dry it off really well with a paper towel.
My ex's family is Filipino and everyonein his family rinses the rice before they make it. It keeps the startch from browning.
