Rice is a staple food for almost half the world's population; it is the largest food crop in the world.
Nevertheless, many people have trouble cooking rice without burning it and having it stick to the
bottom of the pot, or having it absorb so much water that it turns into mush. Here is a technique that can help you achieve great results each time.
The Martha Stewart Show
- 1 3/4 cups water
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1 cup unconverted white rice
- In a 2-quart saucepan, bring water and
salt to a rapid boil over high heat; stir in white
rice. Return mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to a
simmer; cook, covered, until rice is done and
studded with steam holes, 15 to 20 minutes.
Let stand, covered, 5 to 10 minutes, then fluff
rice with a fork.
