Fluffy white rice

Being able to cook fluffy white rice on a stove top is a skill good home cooks should cultivate. It really is not difficult. The ratio given is for one cup, multiply quantities accordingly. One cup of uncooked rice yields 3 cups cooked.

1 c long grain white rice
2 c water
1 tsp salt

Rinse rice under cold running water until water runs clear.
Bring pot of salted water to a boil. Add rice.
Stir to separate grains.
Turn the heat down to low. Cook gently for 20 mins. Do not be tempted to lift the lid off and disturb.
Turn heat off and allow to stand for 5 mins.
Lift lid and fluff the grains with a fork.
