Ingredients:2 cups rice
1/4 teaspoon salt approx
Place rice in pot and add salt (approx means to taste). Add water (a basic recipe is 2 cups water to 1 cup rice) I use the "thumb" method. Point your thumb down into the pot. When the tip touches the rice and the water is at the middle of the knuckle, it's perfect! I use it because my measuring cups are always 'elsewhere' and I always have the thumb! After a couple of tries, you always use the same pot for rice and the same thumb, you figure out exactly how much water to put to make perfect rice your way! I even use this method in my rice cooker pot.
