Recipe by Stardustannie

This is my version on how to cook perfect rice....every grain will cooked to perfection...not one will stick together and you can make fried rice dishes right away with no problems!! Note: you will need a saucepan with clear glass there is to be no peeking! Can easily be time a guesstimate.

Best I have ever made. I put a few TBSP of oil with chopped onion and garlic in the pot first. I then fry the rice for a few minutes add chicken stock and VOILA!! PERFECT!
