2 cups rice, long grain
4 cups water
2 tablespoons salt
1/8 cup butter
Rinse the rice several times before cooking to remove excess starch.
Bring rice, salt and water to a full boil, only stirring once. If you stir rice more than once, you will get a milky texture. Let rice boil for 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove from heat. Drain rice in colander and rinse in warm water, being cautious of steam.
Melt butter in same pot.
Add 1 cup warm water and rice to pot. Stir well.
Place lid firmly on pot to keep steam in, and cook on low heat for 10 minutes.
Turn off heat, but keep covered! Allow steam to cook rice for another 5 minutes.
Remove lid, fluff with fork and serve.
