How do you make rice?

SarahEats | Dec 14, 2006 01:59 PM

I make rice very infrequently, but whenever I do it always comes out wet and mushy. Since I don't make it often I don't want to invest in a rice cooker, so I need a fool-proof method for making fluffy rice on the stovetop.

Here's what I'm doing now for regular long grain white rice: The package says 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of water. I use a tad less than 2 cups (maybe 1 3/4). I bring the water to a boil, add some salt and the rice, give it one stir and cover it. I drop the heat to low and let it cook for 20 minutes.

Any suggestions??
