I've always been a bit confused on that one. Do you judge the palm size before or after cooking?
Personally, I measure after cooking -especially things like couscous - a fist size of couscous will serve a few people. I think it's better to measure the cooked food.
I measure it after cooking, too. Some grains (esp. millet) seem to expand way more than others.
Thanks guys! That's how I have been doing it. Glad to know it was the correct way.
I use 1/3 cup oats dry
and cooked riced, beans, barely, couscous (except I dont eat that) and sweet pots about 1/2 cup 9about the size of my palm scooped, but not heaped.
