                  How to cook rice

In these day every house are cooking rice with rice cooker, but how about if your rice cooker is broken. Are you going to go to the store to buy the new one on that day? Well, for any reason if you cannot get the rice cooker right away, then you can cook the rice on the regular stove pot, it’s simple, and not much different from cooking with the electronic rice cooker. 
 
Get any sauce pan or pot that you want to use to cook rice.

First measuring rice and water:

2 cups of Jasmine rice


3 cups of water (4 cups for long grain rice)

              ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Prepare to cook step by step:

*** Cover the pot with lid all the time during cooking. But not fully cover it the whole pot on step 3 and 4, because it might over flow.


1. Put rice into the pot 


2. Rinse the rice for about one or two time


3. Filled rice with 3 cups of water, and put the rice pot over stove top on high or medium-high, for about 5-7 minutes, or until the rice is boiling, (this is for non stick pot). If using aluminum or stainless steel pot, then you need to stir rice after 3 or 4 minutes, to protecting rice sticking to the bottom of the pot.


4. After the rice is boiling, stir and reduce heat to medium for another 5 - 6 minutes.


5. Stir and then reduce heat down to medium-low for another 5-6 minutes, after that reduce the heat down to low (Lo), and set the time for 15-20 minutes.

6. Enjoy your rice :)

                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Note: To protect the rice from burning, always set the time to help reminding you, so this way, you will not forget that you are cooking rice, and your rice will not get burn.

                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I always cook rice without using measuring cup (most Asian are cook rice this way). I feel it easier to cook rice this way, because I don’t have to remember how many cups of rice, and water I need to use. I can just cook any amount of rice and measuring the water level with my pointer finger (Index finger), by point the finger down on top of the rice (only touch the finger on top of the rice, do not put your finger into the rice), and fill the water until water level reach to the first line of the finger, if you are cooking long grain rice then water should reach to the second line of your finger, or about half way of your finger as picture show.
