    2 cups water to 1 cup rice.

    Boil the water, add a bit of salt, add rice, lower temp and cover.
    Keep heating it until the water is dissolved.

    I always add 2 cups of rice into the rice cooker, then add enough water so that when I dip my finger in the cooker the water is just above my first index finger joint.

    If you want softer and sticker rice, add more water and cook longer and vice versa.

    ahhh...living in China, i can offer a little more insight. All of the above techniques are fine, but if u r cooking it in a pan NEVER stir the rice at all. The starch in the rice will settle on the bottom and this will cause your rice to stick.

    Trust me on that one.

    And yeah, generally put your index finger in and the water should touch the 1st joint....unless u r related to E.T.

    Alternatively, you could get a rice cooker.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Rice tastes better when it's steam rather than "cooked" by a rice cooker.

    Like jimbo said I never stir my rice. Also I add a little butter or olive oil to keep it from sticking. yum yum.

    Rice in steamers are ok, but rice needs to absorb as much water as possible, which is best in a pan.

    While u r cooking it in a pan, you'll note a load of froth, whiteish colour. Take this offwith a spoon, its excess starch and aint good for you.


    Never thought i'd have a conversation on rice culinary skills!

    Agree with famous45, a little oil and butter is great!

    Btw, what does "Don't tell me to rtfm" mean?

    Read the f%%king manual?

    I like to add a stock cube of your favourite flavour to the water,thus getting nice flavoured rice.

    All spelling mistakes and grammatical errors in my post's are intentional.
