White Rice

Good rice can make or break your meal. The basic rule for fluffy rice is 1 cup of water more than the amount of rice. For example, if you are cooking 3 cups of rice, add 4 cups of water. So, basically, measure your rice (We prefer Long grain), add the water, salt, and a few tsp of cooking oil. Place on high heat, till the water is no longer visible above the rice. Now, cook on low heat and place the lid on, turning the rice now an then. I have also found that the pot in which you cook it, can make all the difference. Now, if you are like my husband and prefer sticky rice (must be a Filipino thing and short grain rice) use 1 1/2 cup of water over, and no salt.
