  1. Rinse the rice several times until the water is clear and most of the starch is gone then add the rice and water to a pot and bring to a boil letting it boil until almost all the water on the surface is gone and you can see between the grains of rice.
  2. Cover and reduce to a simmer (very low heat) for 15 minutes, do not fluff rice, it will disturb the stickiness.
