    Ingredients Per Person

    1/4 - 2/3 pint of thoroughly washed rice.
    One and a half times that amount of water.
    Level teaspoon of salt per half pint of rice.
    Teaspoon of butter or margarine.


    1. Bring the ingredients to a vigorous boil in a tightly covered pan or microwave dish.
    2. Stir the rice well, replace lid and bring back to the boil.
    3. Continue boiling for a few seconds then turn the heat right down and simmer for 15 minutes.
    4. Take the rice off the heat, give it a stir, replace lid and leave it to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
    5. Enjoy!


    *Use less water for firmer rice.
    *For fluffier rice, leave covered for 20-40 minutes after taking off heat.
    *Stirring your rice after cooking is not essential, but it does help dissipate the steam, which prevents further cooking while your rice is resting.
    *Omit the butter or marge if you want
