- measuring cup
- saucepan with lid
- wooden spoon
Pour water into a large saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Remember to use 1 3/4 cups of water for every cup of rice. Bring the water to a boil before mixing a teaspoon of salt into the water.
Once the water is already boiling, you may pour in the rice. Be careful not to spill.
Using a wooden spoon, stir the rice on water once or just enough to separate the grains from each other. Always remember not to over-stir it though because it can really cause the rice to become too sticky.
After making sure that the rice grains are now separated evenly on the saucepan, you can cover the pot and let is simmer. Be sure that the lid on the pot fits tightly. The setting for the heat should be set to the lowest. After letting the rice simmer for around 18 minutes, you can remove the saucepan from the heat and allow 5 minutes for the rice to steam within the pot.
Now, gently fluff the rice with the fork to separate the grains just before serving it.
You can now enjoy rice together with your friends. If you get hooked up with rice and want to add it to your daily diet, it is wise to invest in a rice cooker.
