Writing supporting ideas in a paragraph

Prepare Rice

Supporting ideas:

  • steamed rice
  • fried rice
  • curried rice
  • cold rice salad

There are several ways to prepare rice. And I want to tell 4 of them based on Indonesian way. The First is steamed rice, it is the most common way of preparing rice. To make steamed rice is simple, you just steamed an amount of rice in rice cooker for at least 30 minutes. Indonesian is always eat with steamed rice. And then we have fried rice, it’s another variety to prepare rice. Usually, fried rice is the meal served in breakfast. You can combine the rice with additional food, such as meatball, shrimp, sausage, etc. But the most important thing is not to forget to add soy bean kethcup.

Next is curried rice, it’s the combination of steamed rice and curry spice. It’s more delicious if you eat curried rice in hot condition. The colour of curry spice is usually brown and it’s like soup but more thick. Japanese is occasionally made curried rice.
The last is cold rice salad. I think Indonesian seldom to serve rice with this way. I, myself never have taste cold rice salad. But in my opinion, it’s just a combination of steamed rice and fresh vegetables.

  • check weather report

Do you plan to have a camping trip? Well, you surely must to check out these steps first. It will be your advantages during your camping trip.
Before you go, you have to make list of necessary items to take. I suggest you to do this several days before. You don’t want your camping go mess up just because you forget to bring something, right?

If you go camping to the area that you’ve never been there, you must get maps of those area. I think nobody want to get lost. Though, if you’ve go to the area for several times, there isn’t disadvantages to bring up the map. But, make sure first that you have abilities to read the map.
The third suggestion is, if you go camping with your car, make sure that you have your car in good condition. Double check of engines, wheel, suspension, air conditioner is the best precaution for you. Maybe, you must drive your car to the service center before you go camping.

The last but not least, watch television. For what? Check weather report for several next days. So you can prepare of what equipment to bring. For example, umbrella, thick jacket, or waterproof camping tent.
Yeah, that’s all the 4 important things that you don’t want to miss if you have a camping trip. I hope it’s useful for you. Have a nice trip!
