My rice cooker has instructions of "add measure of rice and then add water to x mark" - it works great. I'm trying to do a Spanish rice - which I did a long time ago. I have sautéed onions and garlic with cumin and strained tomatoes. Do I add the rice and then add to x in the water with all the other stuff taking up volume, or do I do the rice and water and then add the other stuff?
( I know I could just use the stove, but I'm hosting a meeting and I need this to be on auto pilot.)
