How to Make White Steamed Rice! Perfectly cooked


  1. Wash rice until water come out clear this is what prevents rice from getting sticky. After is clean add the 2 cups of water, butter and salt (I sometimes use pepper but that is optional) Bring it to a boil cover and cook in LOW heat for 20 minutes.
