Cooking Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in saucepan or pot.
  2. Reduce heat to a simmer.
  3. Add rice and cover pot to cook until the rice is soft (tender) and has absorbed all the water.  This should take 15 to 19 minutes.
  4. Remove from the stove for an additional 10 minutes with the cover still on to allow the rice to steam.

For large recipes, you can take your volume (answer provided here) and enter it into the Large Recipe Calculator (CLICK HERE) to see how much you need for a large batch (e.g. 20 times the recipe).
