Braised Chicken Wings with lemon

Happy Monday, everybody!  The weather is lovely here.  I hope all of you have a nice week.

 Rice is one of the leading food crops in the world.  In Asia, there are millions of people eating rice every day. I feel shocked when I was reading some news about rice will endanger our health if it is cooked incorrectly.  According to The Independent Article (8 February 2017), it reported that scientists warned the usual method of cooking rice can expose those who eat it to traces of the poison arsenic. Andy Meharg, Professor of Biological Sciences at Queens University Belfast, tested three ways of cooking rice to see whether it altered the levels of arsenic.  He found that the safest method of cooking rice is to soak it overnight, then wash and rinse until the water is clear before cooking.  This can reduced the level of industrial toxin by 80 per cent.  Since I am a healthy eater, I will start to cook rice in this way tomorrow.

  When my mum taught me how to cook chicken wings, she asked me to make two small cuts on them in order to get it well done more quickly and absorb more sauce.
