Cooking rice in the microwave is cheaper and faster than cooking rice on the stovetop, you’ll need to watch the pot until the water boils, lower the heat, cover the pot,  then set the timer then immediately turn off heat. The strong heat under the container will overdo the rice or create burnt, stuck-in-pot rice that difficult to scuff out.
Microwaved rice looks the same, tastes the same, smells the same and fluffs the same. The top secret to microwaving rice is to add the correct amount of water. Too much water = soggy rice, Too little water = dry rice, Just right water = just right rice. So lets begin with the recipe..
