Back to Basics: How to cook rice on the stove (with my mom)

Subscribe & check out my other videos!
Please note this is how my mom does it and we use MEDIUM GRAIN rice. Medium grain is a little different than longer grain (which doesn’t tend to stick). I was specifically asked to show how to make “sticky rice”, which is what Hawaii tends to have if you have ever had a plate lunch here. These cooking “rules” may not apply to other types of rice!
1 cup of rice
1 cup of water
Put it on HIGH heat on the stove until it comes to a full boil (approx 2 min)
Let it boil for 1 minute and then turn it down to MEDIUM heat.
Let it cook until almost all the water is gone (approx 2-3 min).
Turn to MEDIUM LOW (just one notch above the LOW setting).
COVER and let it cook for 20 minutes.
TURN OFF. Remove from heat and let it steam for 20 minutes with the cover on.
Also, we do not put butter or milk or whatever on our rice. We eat it just like this.
Side note: Mom is going in for her hip replacement in 10 days. She will be laid up for six weeks. Two things could happen here. You may be seeing a boom in recipes I will be recording; or I may disappear altogether. A lot of depends on how much time she is going to be demanding of me, as I will have to take her for physical therapy 2-3x/week for six weeks. The first two weeks, the physical therapist will come to the house (thank goodness)! Hopefully you’ll get some more opinions on the dishes along with progress reports on mom as well.

Despite what many cookbooks suggest, rice-to-water ratios can’t simply be scaled up proportionally.

How much do you know about Asian noodle types? Watch now:

We have a rice pilaf recipe that works without fail when made using 1 1/2 cups of rice, but many readers have written us to ask why they end up with an inch of mushy rice on the bottom of the pot when they try to double it. The reason is that, despite what many cookbooks suggest, rice-to-water ratios can’t simply be scaled up proportionally. After running a series of tests, we confirmed that rice absorbs water in a 1:1 ratio, no matter the volume. So in our original rice pilaf recipe, which calls for 1 1/2 cups of rice and 2 1/4 cups of water, the rice absorbed 1 1/2 cups of water. The remaining 3/4 cup of water evaporated. But here’s the catch: The amount of water that evaporates doesn’t double when the amount of rice is doubled. In fact, we found that when cooking a double batch of rice using the same conditions—the same large pot and lid and on the same stove burner over low heat—as we’d used for a single batch, the same quantity of water evaporated: 3/4 cup. Hence, simply doubling the recipe—increasing the amount of rice to 3 cups and the water to 4 1/2 cups—leads to mushy rice because there is an excess of water in the pot. The bottom line: To double our rice pilaf recipe, use 3 cups of rice and only 3 3/4 cups of water.

Make Perfect White Rice on the Stovetop

Don’t be intimidated by cooking white rice at home without a rice cooker. No need for them! This is my way of cooking rice and is by no means the ONLY way but it is the way that always works for me.

I’ve tried everything under the sun to make rice like the package says and it has never worked. It was too gummy or crunchy in the middle or it turned into rice pudding. Doing it my way is the best way I’ve found as it makes perfectly cooked rice that’s cooked all the way through and is not sticky or gummy. You can rinse the rice ahead of time if you prefer but it makes no difference in the final outcome in the way I make my rice.

As I do it, bring 3 cups water to a boil with a pinch of salt. Stir in 2 cups of long grain white rice, cover with a tight fitting lid and turn the burner down to the lowest setting on your stove top. Set the timer for 20 minutes. When done, take off heat and let sit for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork. Enjoy!

You can also see me cooking this rice on an electric Stove Top here


I recently had to cook on electric for a couple of months. which was a great chance to test this method.

I had no real trouble at all getting it to work. I used one ring, on high, to bring the Rice to a dancing edge but because Electric stoves don’t cool as quick as Gas, it’s important to move it to a fresh ring on low (make sure it is already on low, a cold plate will zap the heat out of your pot) on my hob setting 2 seemed too work best. it came out perfect time and time again.
