Ingredients:

1 1/2 - cups of water

1 - cup of rice

1 - Teaspoon of salt

3 - table spoons of vegetable oil

1 - tablespoon of butter or margarine or dairy substitute

(simply double or triple the portions of initial ingredients as you see fit for a much larger group of people).


Cookware:

1 pot to boil the rice

1 bowl to clean rice

1 wooden stirring spoon


How to cook the rice:

1- Place one cup of rice into a bowl

2- Using your hand (make sure they're clean), rinse out the rice thoroughly with water & drain.

3- After cleaning rice prepare your pot for a brief frying of the rice with 3 table spoons of vegetable oil, place the heat on medium flame (make sure not to overheat the oil).

4- Place the rice into the frying oil in the pot, stir frequently for approximately 1 min or when rice looks like its slightly golden.

5- Immediately place a cup & a half of water into the pan & add the salt.

6- Let the rice get to a boil with the flame set on high.

7- Reduce flame to the lowest setting after rice reaches a complete boil.

8- The rice shall cook for about 30mins or less.

9- Check rice after about the first 20 mins or so to see if its sticking to the bottom of pan.

10- If so it’s an indicator that it may have cooked to quickly, at this point you can taste it for softness and texture.

11- For added texture and smooth taste add 1 teaspoon of butter, margarine or healthy diary substitute.

12- The Rice should be ready to serve

Bon Appetit!


Note: every cup of rice you need a cup & a half of water that should help you remember each time if you don’t have the recipe at hand, good luck & it takes a few times to get the right balance of texture & softness. You never want to overcook the rice or undercook it. Enjoy!

Thanks @ AudreyHowitt, I'm going to be making more recipe hubs soon, but I'm steering more toward the healthy cooking side of things, even though I do like eating, and cooking food as white rice, but I must let it go for now, to improve my health overall.
