More Key Hints on Cooking Rice

Just because a rice cooker automatically steams off the water and then shuts off, does not mean you can put in any old amount of water. Too much, it will be soggy and grotesque, losing all its flavor. Too little, it will be much too hard. You get a feel for how much, which depends on your altitude and how long you soak your grain. But Please, please try to get it al dente so that your health efforts can be richly rewarded with awesome flavor and texture. It should be downright dry and tacky through and through, and chewy, yet plenty soft or tender. This goes for rice or ryse or anything like that.
