I tried this again but it doesn''t seem to have much flavor. The problem is - I can''t decide what, exactly it needs!

I had several questions, such as "what type of rice?" (I went with regular white) and "what is the half boiled stage?" (I guessed) and "Chinese salt??" (couldn't find a thing, so I used Emeril's Asian Essence.) Things maybe a more experienced cook would know? Anyway, I jumped in anyway and have to say this turned out pretty good. The rice is a little sticky, but I like it that way so no big deal. Besides, it's probably my fault! It really is good, I would have just liked a little more clarification.
