## Do I boil water before adding rice?

Once you bring the water to a boil you need to turn it down to a simmer. Adding cold rice at this point can thriw off this process. Rice is typically cooked based on ratios of volume. Boiling the water first won’t effect this unless you lose track of it and the boiling causes your water content to reduce.

## How do you know if rice is done?

Once the rice has been cooking for around 12 minutes, all of the water should be soaked up by the grains, and the rice will be al dente. To determine if the rice is cooked, taste it and see what you think about the texture. If it is chewy or hard in the center then add 1/8 to 1/4 cup of water.
