1 cup unpolished rice, 3 cups water.
Put the rice on in cold water, and bring it gradually
to the boil. Boil hard for 5 minutes, stirring once or
twice. Draw it to the side of the stove, where it is
comparatively cool, or, if a gas stove is used, put the
saucepan on an asbestos mat and turn the gas as
low as possible. The water should now gradually
steam away, leaving the rice dry and well cooked.
Serve plain or with curry.
