Wash rice very well about three times.
Each time, but particularly for the first wash, discard the milky water as quickly as you can so that you can get rid of the rice bran on the surface of the grain.
Rinse the rice about 5~6 times.
Measure the proper amount of water for the rice, and pour it in.
Keep the rice in the water for about 30 minutes.
Rice needs to absorb some water before heate
Wait until the rice boils, then turn down the heat to in between medium and low.
Don’t open the lid at this moment.
Just wait for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, turn up the heat to the highest.
The lid cannot be lifted yet.
Wait for 5 minutes, and turn the heat off.
You cannot open the lid yet.
Wait for 10 more minutes.
Stir the rice very well.
Mix the rice almost as if you were slicing into the rice, or the rice may become cloggy and gooey.
I successfully burned the rice a little.
Successfully? Yes! We treasure this crispy, brown part as a delicacy.
If you don’t want this brown part, simply shorten the last cooking time at the highest heat.
Say, 3 minutes minimum.
