Boiled Rice is the simplest method to cook and usually is used 3 ways rinse, soak and cook, rice is one of those kitchen staples that can help round out a wide variety of meals. Whether you prefer white, brown, or basmati, rice can make a tasty side dish to any main course. 

But if you don't have a rice cooker, boiling rice on the stovetop can sometimes be intimidating because it requires careful watching. Once you master the technique for boiling your favorite rice, though, you can whip up a pot in no time.
Boil or steams are both methods that can be used to cook rice, generally discarding rice water is used in cooking biryani or pulao

However here I used the same method, boil rice in a large amount of water and discard rice water after boiling through all essential nutrients have wasted with discarding the water, despite knowing all I do it just because I love to have light rice but you can cook steam rice, but for this has to be used some tricky method, Which I mentioned below:

Rinse the rice before boiling white rice, it’s a good idea to rinse it. That removes any dusty starch that might be on the rice so it doesn’t stick together when it cooks. Place 1 cup (195 g) medium- or long-grain white rice in a strainer, and rinse it under cold running water.

Soaking the rice is considered an essential part before any type of white rice cooking soak rice in cold water for at least 2 hours, For steam Add 2 cups (470 ml) of water to a small saucepan, and place it on the stove at medium-high to high heat. Allow the water to heat until it comes to a roiling boil


When you’re making white rice, use a 1:1 ratio for the rice and water. That means for every 1 cup of soaked rice you plan to make, use 1 cup of water.

On the other hand if your rice isn't soaked enough then 1:5 the ratio for the unsoaked rice that means use 1.5 cup water for 1 cup of rice, As it cooks, rice expands so it’s important to use a pan that’s large enough for the amount that you’re making. In general, a 2-quart (2.5 L) pan is large enough for 1 to 2 cups of uncooked rice.   

After the pot reaches a simmer, turn the burner’s heat down to low, and cover the pot with its lid. Allow the rice to cook for approximately 18 minutes. At that point, start checking its texture. When the rice is finished, it will be firm but not crunchy. You want it to be tender, so it’s okay if it’s somewhat sticky. However, make sure that you don’t cook it so long that it becomes gummy.

Don’t take the lid off the pot before the 18-minute mark. It helps trap steam that aids in the cooking process, so if you remove the lid, it may take longer for the rice to finish.

If you don’t have a lid for your pot, use foil to cover it while the rice cooks. Just make sure to cinch the foil around the edges so the steam can’t escape. Once the rice is finished cooking, turn off the heat but leave the rice in the pot with the lid on. Let it sit and steam for another 5 minutes to finish off the cooking process
