Plain long grain white that is.
I've never gotten it to where it is done, and has retained its shape and looseness.
Always ends up a clumped together and sort of mushy.
Now that Hinode black rice works great.
Oh, I use the boil method.
So, how do I get my rice cooked like a Chinese or other Asian place does?

Bingo.  Wash the rice. Then use less water or better yet use a steamer.

You will never cook rice any other way again.

Basmati always turns out perfect.  Regular rice I mess up often.

I was told, the trick is to not lift the lid.  No matter how much you want to, leave it alone.

I make it like this video.
And DON'T skip the step that rinses the starch off the rice.

Use a better grade of rice e.g. Jasmine or Basmati. 

Rinse the dry rice to get rid of any dust or talcum powder. 

Don't use too much water.  The right amount is around 2:1 water to rice.

Have the water fully boiling when you add the rice. 

Reduce heat gradually so it doesn't boil over or scorch.

Don't overcook it.  Turning the heat off will not make it stop cooking immediately. 
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 8:28:46 PM EDT
rinse it well, use less water (around 1.6 cups water for 1 cup rice), boil for about 16-17 minutes, turn off the heat, let it sit for 10.


or just boil it like pasta in large amounts of water and take out when it's absorbed enough, strain, dump the water, and let the rice sit in the hot pan for a bit. also works really well.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 8:28:48 PM EDT
Wash the basmati rice in a strainer under cold water and shake it afterward to get the extra water out.

water to rice 2 cups : 1cup

cook 20 minutes

remove from heat, stir with fork, leave uncovered so excess water evaporates off.

Wash, rinse & dump the cleaning water add fresh water to cover it plus add extra water enough to reach the first joint on your finger then cook it.
DONT STIR or mess with it once you start cooking (otherwise it will turn mushy if you F with it).

Tell my phillipino wife I want rice and she fires up the zojirushi cooker and cook it.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 8:30:57 PM EDT
I don't understand why people think rice is difficult to cook as I think it is the simplest thing in the world to cook.  Maybe it's because I use a heavy gauge pan with a tight fitting lid.  I use a 2 to 1 ratio of water to rice, bring it to a boil, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.  Perfect every time.

By the way, "wild rice" isn't rice.

I learned from a chinese malaysian friend. Dude didn't measure water. Just put well rinced rice in a pot, put his finger on top of the rice, and poured in water until it hit his knuckle above the rice.

I don't get it--rice is the easiest thing in the world to cook.  I don't need a fancy rice cooker to do it, either, no single taskers for me; all you need is a saucepan with a tight fitting lid.  Put two cups of water in the pan, plus a half teaspoon or so of salt, and a pat of butter.  Bring to a boil.  Add one cup rice, stir it in, leave the lid off and return to a boil.  Stir it again, put the lid on and turn the heat to low.  Give it twenty minutes, leave it alone.  Turn off the heat, let it sit for five minutes.  Remove the lid and fluff with a fork, perfect every time.

Now then, I live at 6,000 ft or so elevation in Colorado.  I give it two or three additional minutes, and use just a touch more liquid.  Use a timer, it helps.  Pay attention, don't wander off.

I have a $15 black&decker rice cooker and it has made me pounds of delicious rice over the years. Don't buy cheap rice. I buy some shit that comes in a yellow bag. I think its jasmine. Rinse rice before cooking. I add salt and a little EVOO to the mix. Stir once or twice during 10min cook time, cut power, let rest another 10min, stir again. done.

Microwave rice cooker. All I've used for the last 10-15 years. If it's good enough for a Thai gal, it's good enough for a white boy.

Rice cooker. Two cups of rice plus equal number of cups of water.

1 cup of rice to 1.5 cup of water. Bring to boil and the turn to low for 20 mins. Done.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 8:36:36 PM EDT
Just add a small amount of olive oil or coconut oil to the water as you start to heat it.

Don't overcook it.

Don't lift the lid.

I use the knuckle method as well.

But, I small dice a white onion.   Saute it in butter.   Add the rice, sauté it a little bit (adds a little nutty flavor) deglaze with a little white wine.   Add chicken stock using the knuckle method.   Throw in a bay leaf.   Bring it to a boil.   Cover, and simmer for about 15 minutes.   At the end throw in a small chunk of whole butter, fluff with a fork and done.

Exactly. I hate that it is another gadget that takes up space, but it makes perfect rice every time. No washing the rice or anything else. Dump it in and press a button.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 8:40:01 PM EDT
I always just measure 2 to 1 water to rice.  Water in a pot, set to high.  Salt the water, add some butter.  As soon as the water is boiling, add the rice, stir it in with a fork.  Cover the pot and only let it boil for about 30 seconds, then set the burner as low as it will go.  20 minutes later, perfect rice.
Link Posted: 4/17/2017 8:41:04 PM EDT
Buy correct rice.
Rinse in cold water 3 times.
Drain water.
Add 1.25 cups water to 1 cup of rice.
Put on stove.
Bring to boil.
Add a pinch (1/2 tsp) of salt.
Cover and turn down heat to simmer.
Wait 20 minutes.
Fluff with wooden spatula and feather in seasoned rice vinegar if desired.

Perfect sushi rice.
