Notes:

  • You can also pressure cook for up to 2 or 3 whistles or until well cooked. Only concern is the texture of rice, most of us want rice to be firm not massy. That’s why I follow the above step 5 in my process.
  • If you prefer pressure cooking method, then use 1 : 1 1/2 ratio (rice : water).
