    Actually no. The starch content varies for the rice varieties. Basmati has the lowest with arborio the highest.

    To get perfect basmati rice - was twice in hot water then cold water. Then cook with 1:1.25 ratio rice:water. I pan fry my rice a little in butter to get it translucent then add water. Cook till water is absorbed. Then fork immediately to fluff it up.

    Sewing
    Craft
    Doing anything lady like - eg makeup, clothing, shoes (I have no style what so ever!!)
    Cooking- I hate following recipes even if I read them I don't follow them 😂
    Budgeting
    Spelling & maths. I'm extremely intelligent (yes I am) but I still get their, there they're etc mixed up and I just cannot spell. I actually think I'm dyslexic. I cannot do maths. I can't work out 10% for example off $100. Yes I know. I'm dumb HAHA!!

    The good news is I can use power tools, a lawn mower, and I know how check oil in a car!

    I can't tie shoelaces the way you're supposed to - where you make one loop and then wrap the other end around, do something tricky and then hey presto - shoelaces beautifully tied. That just looks like magic to me. I have to make two separate loops and then just tie them like I'm making a knot. And then they always come undone. DH has shown me countless times but nope, not going to happen.

    I can't make good stove top gravy or knit or sew beyond a basic hand sewing technique.

    Anything health related, I rang my mum to ask her how to go to the gp. Growing up we never went to the doctor unless we were injured and I can only remeber 4 incidents so being sick away from home was totally forgein to me. I had teeth pulled last year and still havent done the claim at Medicare because I dont know how lol thank God for google
