  • If water is still, there in the container then Cook for another few minutes till the rice has adsorbed all the water.
  • Turn off the flame, cover the utensil and leave the rice for 5 min. Be sure not to skip the resting step at the end, this helps the moisture in the rice redistributes itself for a more uniform texture.
