I think "Rice recipe" makes just as much sense here as "cooked rice recipe"--because really, who would have a recipe for uncooked rice?

In English its certainly a littlw silly, but they have a separate word for uncooked rice. Like... Corn and popcorn, maybem

Random Swahili fact, there are three different words for rice in Swahili.

Cooked rice - wali

Raw unhusked rice - mpunga

Raw husked rice - mchele
