This isn't so much a recipe, but a cooking technique. This left the rice nice and fluffy.
- Bring water to boil in a large pot. Stir in rice, oil or butter, and salt. Simmer briskly, uncovered, until rice is almost tender, about 30 minutes.
- Drain rice into a steamer basket that fits inside the pot. Fill pot with about 1 inch water and return to heat. Place basket of rice in pot; cover and steam until tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
- Scoop rice into a bowl and fluff gently with a fork.
- Note: For easy cleaning of steamer, I sprayed it with a cooking spray.
