Categories: Korean, Vegetarian, Rice

2 c Rice 2 c Water 1. Pour the rice into a cooking pot. Fill the pot nearly to the brim with cold water, then pour the water out. The rice will remain at the bottom of the pot. Repeat this process 4 or 5 times, or until the water seems quite clear. Rinsing the rice in this manner eliminates any excess starch. 2. Cover the rice with 2 cups water and let it stand for 30 minutes. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and steam for 20 minutes or until dry. Generally speaking, if Americans are to be served, use 1/2 cup uncooked rice for each person. Double the amount if cooking for Koreans, especially Korean men.
