Here is a cool SOS kitchen tip to help you save your sanity not to mention a little bit of money the next time you
First, save the rice that has not been burned by scooping it up with a spoon and transferring it to a new clean pot. Next, thinly slice an onion and put several slices on top of the saved rice. Cover the pot and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The onion will absorb the burn smell from the rice.
Finally, take the lid off the pot and remove the sliced onion. Your rice should now be ready to eat and enjoy.
The key here is that hopefully enough rice was able to be saved so that you will not have to make a new batch of rice and instead can save whatever rice you may have left in the box for another day!
