  • Pour water and rice into the pot; bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Cook, stirring frequently to prevent rice from sticking, until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cover; cook until rice is tender, about 30 minutes. Remove lid and stir rice; cover and cook until rice is very soft, about 30 minutes more.
