How much salt to add to rice?
 
If I am making 4 portions of rice (1 cup uncooked) and using water (I have no broth), about how much salt should I add with the rice when cooking to season it?

Enough to make it taste good.

For one or two cups of uncooked rice, I use 1/4 tsp of salt. I use it because if I don't, the rice gets a bit sticky.

Salt for flavour can be added by each person.

I have watched my wife make rice twice a day every day for 6 years and she has never put salt in the water to cook rice.
But I guess it might make a difference if the rice is not new.

Salt in rice? :huh:
I've never salted my rice either. Not that I see anything wrong with that.

I add about 1/2 teaspoon per pt of liquid. Sometimes after draining it's nice to add a knob of salted butter as well but that's a matter of taste

I add 1/4 tsp salt to my rice. I usually make 4 servings.

I've never put salt in my rice when cooking .. each person can season to taste when it's done. I've never had a problem with it cooking, being too sticky or dry due to no salt.

I've used my little Black and Decker rice cooker two or three times a week for the last few years. I've never added any salt. Never had a batch that was anything but perfectly cooked.

:lol:
That might be it. I almost always cook brown basmati rice. Basmati is usually aged.
