(a) Prepare 1 1/2 cups of rice. (cook rice according to package directions). Look at rice box/bag to see how much water is needed for 1 1/2 cups of rice (amount of water depends on type of rice). Bring water to a boil, add your rice, stir for 30 seconds, take off boil, and cover pot with lid. Keep covered until rice is cooked to your liking.
