How I Cook Rice
Note, I use basmati rice when the dish doesn’t need sticky rice. I prefer the texture. These directions are good to use with most any white rice.
In a saucepan, bring water to a boil.
Stir in rice.
Cover, reduce heat and cook for 20 minutes.
Remove from heat, fluff with fork. Let set for 5 minutes then serve.
Add 1 tablespoon butter and 1 teaspoon salt per cup of rice.
Measure out and add a 1/4 cup of soy or Worcestershire sauce.
Use chicken broth in place of the water. I nearly always do this for fried rice. Make sure you make your rice for fried rice at least a day ahead of time.
