Type: Rice
Courses: Side dish
Serves: 16 people

Recipe Ingredients

8 cups 1896mlWater
4 cups 640g / 22ozUncooked converted white rice - no substitute

Recipe Instructions

Bring water to rapid boil in large (4 1/2-quart) heavy saucepan over high heat. Add rice, stir well, then return to rapid bowl. Adjust heat so water stays at gentle but steady ripple and cook uncovered until all water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Do not stir. Fluff rice gently with fork and cool 1 hour. Do not cover. Fluff rice gently again, then spoon lightly "do not pack" into plastic storage containers, snap on lids, label and date. Set in refrigerator or freezer.

To reheat refrigerated or frozen rice, pile rice in large fine sieve, fork lightly to separate, and balance sieve on top of large, heavy saucepan over 2 inches boiling water. Cover loosely with lid or foil and steam just until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes, but times will vary according to amount of rice being reheated and whether it's refrigerated or frozen. Fluff with fork and serve.
