Perfect White Rice

  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dry white rice

You need a pot with a good lid for this recipe. Put the water into the pot and bring it to a boil over high heat. Add the salt. When the water is at a full rolling boil, add the rice. Stir it up and return the water to a boil. Now reduce the heat to the lowest possible. Put the lid onto the pot and let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes. Do not peak! The rice will cook, you have to trust it. When the time is up, remove the lid and serve. Easy as pie, Perfect Rice. This makes enough for 4 servings, or about 3 cups.

This recipe is easily doubled. In this case use 4 cups hot water, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 cups of dry rice. Prepare just as directed. This makes enough for about 8 people, or it will serve 4 or 6 with plenty of leftovers.

    I love this site and this recipe made cooking rice easier! However, I noticed when I switched from an electric stove to a gas one, I had to increase cooking time from 15mins to 18mins :) Either way, this recipe made things much easier! Thanks!

    I have been making ‘Perfect’ rice for years using a large pot (2 qt) 3/4 filled with cold water, 1 tbsp vinegar, any flavor, and 2 cups rice. Bring to boil, turn down heat, stir once in a while and taste for doneness after about 7 minutes. Do not cover. strain rice when done to your taste. The rice can be rinsed in hot running water and held for other dishes etc. This way it never ‘glues’ together and I can make two or three times what I need for one meal to have on hand for other things as it keeps in the frig for about a week or freezes for about a month.
