Rice is everyone’s favorite and making plain boil rice is easiest. But, always remember to add salt at the beginning. As it starts to cook, rice become thick and adding salt at this stage may make it stick to rice which would taste really bad.
Cooking pasta is similar to cooking rice, you will have to add salt at the start. Adding salt at first stage of boiling water boosts the flavor of pasta although a little amount usually goes in it but it makes a huge difference.
Since cooking meat is a bit time taking but make sure that you would add not just salt but all the other spices at the beginning because once the meat starts cooking, it contracts and becomes difficult to absorb the aroma of spices and flavor.
