Cuban White Rice

or at least she was Cuban who told me how to do this?

White Rice:

What you need:

1 1/4 cup water (per cup 1 1/2 of rice)
1 teaspoon kosher salt (may be a little less)
1 1/2 cup mahatma extra long grain rice
3 tablespoons canola oil

  1. Start by boiling water and adding salt
  2. When the water begins to boil, add the rice and lower the heat to low. Cover the pot after it begins to boil.
  3. Wait 20 minutes, and then add 3 tablespoons of canola oil. Stir the rice well and make sure it’s not sticking to the sides.
  4. Then cover the rice again and leave on low heat until you’re ready to serve

Cooking tips:

After adding salt, taste water to make sure it isn’t too salty & a Hitachi rice cooker is best!
