14 Minute Fluff Method

Just remember this magic combination: 1-2-1-14
( 1 cup rice,2 cups water, 1 teaspoon salt, 14 minutes cooking time )

as follows:
1. Put 2 cups of water, 1 teaspoon salt, in a large pot with tight fitting lid. Bring to the boil.
2. Add 1 cup rice to the vigorously boiling water, let it return to hard boil.
3. Put lid on tight,turn flame to simmer, and leave without stirring for 14 minutes.

For Drier rice: Remove lid and let rice steam dry to desired consistency, over the low flame.
For extra-tender rice: Start with 1/3 cup more water and increase the cooking time four or five minutes.

For extra flavor, try adding a bullion cube to the water in which you steam the rice, or use a can of consomme' in place of part of the water in the 14-Minute Fluff Method. Delicious !
