how to cook rice?


It’s always easier to use a rice cooker when cooking rice. Just follow the instruction manual and voala… you got yourself cooked rice!


But what if you don’t have a rice cooker? You may even own one but you want to save money from paying your electric bill, because using a rice cooker can consume more electricity.

I found the traditional way of cooking rice without burning it. Just follow these simple steps and sure enough you’ll never eat burned rice anymore.

One:  Measure how many cups of rice that you would like to cook and place it in a cooking pot. (Ex: 5 cups of rice)

Two:  Wash rice and remove excess dirt.

Three:  Put water following the given equation:
for every 1 cup of rice = 1 cup of water + 1 cup of water.
(Ex: If we have 5 cups of rice = 5 cups of water + 1 cup of water)

Four:  Place the cooking pot on stove and cover. Wait for it to boil.

Five:  Once boiling reaches the cover of pot, adjust the heat to lowest. Don’t remove cover and set timer to 15 minutes.

Six:  After 15 minutes, remove from heat and let it sit on the table for another 5 to 8 minutes without removing the cover.

Seven:  Enjoy!

Bonus tips:  You can use any cooking pot with cover. 
                    The 15 minutes is a standard waiting time in any quantity of rice you choose, just make sure to set the heat on the lowest.

    1. hi mary! you need to add more water - sample computation: 1 is to 1 plus 3 or 4 more cups... try it to determine your preferred consistency.
