Rice is very easy to cook. You use one part rice with 2 parts water. (Example 1 cup of rice with 2 cups of water) add the rice and water into a pot, turn on high heat, stir. When it starts to boil, stir again and turn off stove, cover and let sit for 20 minutes WITHOUT opening the lid. After the 20 minutes is up, remove cover and fluff with a fork. It will come out perfect every time.
If you will use Uncle Ben's Minute Rice, the receipt you got in the first answer will work perfectly. If you use some of the other brands, it might be a little tough or hard. Sometimes it will have to be cooked longer, depending on the brand.
best way to cook rice is heat olive oil and butter. Put in one cup of rice and let it toast lightly. Add one cup hot chicken broth(be careful it will spatter). Stir, cover, cook for 10 minutes or until done.
