Choose how much rice you would like to make. Measure, and place the desired amount in the rice cooker.
Note: 1 cup of uncooked rice = 3 cups of cooked rice
Wash the rice by putting water in the rice cooker, and using your hand to stir the rice.
When the water begins to look murky, dump the water out. Use your hand to make sure the rice doesn’t pour out with the water. Repeat the washing at least three times.
Place enough water to cover the rice, and let it sit for at least a half hour.
Once again, dump the water. This time when refilling the water, you should measure carefully. Place the back of your four fingers on top of the rice. Fill with enough water to just cover your fingers.
Place the lid on the rice cooker insert, place it in the cooker, and press the start button down.
Note: The great thing about using a rice cooker is that it will time the cooking itself.
When the start button pops up, the rice is done. Use the rice scoop to serve yourself a perfect scoop of sticky rice.
