Hmmm. How to put this tactfully...
Yes, you're supposed to put food on your white rice. If you're like

And if you simply don't like white rice, or have never had well-
prepared white rice and think it's the rice's fault, and you have a
choice in the matter, the thing to do is probably to eat something else.
