Wash the rice a couple of times by gently scrubbing it with your fingers to wash.
Transfer to a deep pot that may prevent the water from bubbling and over flowing.
Add the water and bring it to a boil and cover and cook for about 10 mins or until all the water is absorbed.
Check a rice grain to check if it is cooked through.
Add more water if required if the rice needs to soften a little bit more and cook until done. The age of the rice is an important factor when it comes to the water proportions, older rice may need more water to cook completely than fresh crop rice.
Add 1/2 cup more to cook the rice to soft texture if needed.
