Rice

Ingredients

1 cup jasmine rice, rinced thoroughly

1 and a half cups water for cooking

2 teaspoons olive oil

Salt to taste

Directions

Measure 1 cup of jasmine rice for every 2 servings. Rinse rice thoroughly with cold water until water runs clear or nearly so.

Once rinsed, rid any excess water from the clean rice and place into pot. For every 1 cup washed rice, add 1.5 cups cold water.

On medium heat, place pot, and salt the water to taste. Should be slightly salty, not anything crazy though.

Bring to a hard boil and let the water evaporate, you should see the water right at the first layer of rice at the top of the pot, stirring and keeping an eye on the overall water level.

Once most of the water above the first layer of rice is evaporated, bring to heat to low and add the olive oil. Mix it around and cover on low for 15 minutes.

Once done transfer to bowl and fluff with fork!

Notes

Tried to make this as detailed as possible from my aunt’s recipe that she texted me.
