Rice of your choosing (not minute rice)
Any seasonings you want to add
Pot & tight lid
Butter knife (optional)
First off, you need to decide how many people you need to feed and how large a portion size you want. For a family of four, I use about 250 ml of rice. The ratio of rice is 2:1 (twice the amount of water to rice). Take your water, rice, and any seasoning you want (I add butter as well) and then boil it on high.
When the rice is finished, you should notice little round valleys in it. Those are a good sign! Don’t worry if you can still see moisture, because the next step is to let it sit covered for five minutes to absorb the water. I take it off the burner for this, but you could turn it down to warm if it seems a little extra watery.
After that, check to make sure it doesn’t need longer. It’s hard to see the difference, but if you tilt the pot you can see the reflection of the light off moisture better and also notice if it drips.
