Preparation Instructions

Rinse the rice in several changes of water, then soak in cold water for thirty minutes. Put drained rice and other ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Then, turn heat very low, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it sit another 10 minutes. Remove the spices, fluff with a fork, and serve.

Helpful Hints

If you are cooking more or less rice, you will have to adjust the amount of water, but it is NOT proportional. Try this trick: With the rice in a pan, add enough water to come up to the first knuckle on your index finger when you place your finger on top of the rice. I don’t know why, but it works.
