1/2 cup is less than 3/4 cup.

Yes. 1 1/2 cups stock or broth for 3/4 cup of rice. That's the 2 to 1 ratio MAMA was referring to.

I, too, use the 2:1 ratio. Rather than trying to remember measurements, doubling, halving, whatever, just take any old cup (it can be as small as a 1/4 measuring cup, really), fill it once with the rice and twice with the liquid. Remember when you measure the rice that it will absorb the two more measures of water or broth if you don't want to make too much. For pilaf I use chicken stock/broth with added herbs, depending on the time of year. When I have my herb garden going great guns it's parsley, thyme, chives and sage. I don't care for rice too al dente nor too mushy (hate it when the ends blow out like they do in soups most of the time).
