Rice is kind of a big deal. It gets a bad reputation nowadays, because carbohydrates have been demonized. I know better, though.
This is a simple recipe on how to cook white rice.
- Put whatever amount of rice you want to eat into a pot (usually, it's about 1 cup for 1 person)
- Put your index finger on the surface of the rice, and fill it with water till the surface of the water reaches the first knuckle of that finger
- Add salt to taste
- Let it boil
- Take it off the cooker once the water has evaporated
Note that for health reasons, sometimes it's good to add water "in excess" (i.e., a lot more than you need), note when the rice is cooked, and then drain the rice. This reduces the amount of starch you ingest, which isn't so bad a thing. Choose your poison, if you'll pardon the phrase.
Whatever works for you. This is an easy recipe, and rice (white or brown) is an awesomely delicious thing to eat.
