So the rice is cooked like pasta in a lot of water then drained when tender? I've never made rice that way but I do cook barley like that.

If that is what she is saying then I totally agree. I have cooked rice like that for year. When the rice is done to my liking, I just place the pot in the sink and run cold water into it slowly so the rice doesn't spill out. When the water and rice becomes cold,I drain the rice and fluff it up. It is now ready for just about any treatment.

Anything other than as hot buttered rice as a side dish. BUT great for fried rice and such.

You can always fire it in a glass bowl with some butter and nuke it so it becomes hot buttered rice in 2 minutes.

MM, that is the boiling method.

With the absorption method, you only put a small amount of water in...so 1 cup of rice to 1 1/2 cups of water

The rice absorbs all the water over about 12-14 minutes and becomes very soft and fluffy

Thats the way I cook all my rice. I usually do 2:1 ratio

Yes, it always works out really nice, especially for fried rice, it prevents it from being sticky
