I still cook white rice like my Grandma. She put her finger in the pot resting on the top of the rice and filled the water to the first knuckle. No measuring cups needed. It works every time. I don’t know why, but it does. No matter how much rice I cook, 1 knuckle above. DONE.
It doesn’t hurt to throw two lap chong sausages on top to add great flavor to the rice. Just sayin’.
