I use this technique all the time. Saves on prep time during meal preparation, and from boil overs
1Wash rice. That means cover with water, stir around, ( water will be cloudy) pour off water and do this until when stirred, it stays mostly clear, ( at least 4 times)
2cover rice with clean water and let soak 2 hours or over night
3When ready to cook. Change water and place rice and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil
4boil 4 or 5 minutes, place a tight fitting lid on saucepan and turn heat off.
5keep lid on until ready to serve. water may be absorbed. If rice cools down, pour some water over it and heat on again. I used to boil OVER rice all the time and panic it wasn't ready when my accompanent dish was. Hope this helps someone out in this "cooking " world
