when it comes to eating rice, we don't need to say "cooked"

It's somewhat clumsily trying to distinguish between wali and mchele. It needs to be done somehow so people know there is a difference between the words even though they are both rice, but the execution is somewhat lacking.

a better way is to discover if we know the difference when we translate the sentence into swahili

Why is "wali" most of the time translated just "rice" and suddenly in this exercise it needs to be "cooked rice"
