At first this was not clear there were 8 cups liquid. It takes 8-10 cups water/brother to 1 cups of rice. I cooked it overnight in a crock pot. A little stuck to the sides by morning. When I got back from SE Asia I craved this all the time. There would be an array of veggies, sauces and protiens to add to it. I added oyster sauce to the green onions, and bacon on top.
