1/2cupwhite rice(such as jasmine; about 95g)
Note that the rice to water ratio should be: 1 (rice) : 1.3 (water). You can make it 1:1.5 if you like your rice soft. Pre-soak your rice for at least 10 minutes. Drain and transfer to a shallow, heat-proof container that will fit in your steamer, and add the water to the rice. Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to the rice texture they like! Also, if you're making short grain rice, you can reduce the ratio to 1:1.1.
Place in a steamer filled with cold water (the water should not be boiling when the rice is placed into the steamer).
Turn on the heat to high, cover, and cook for 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the rice sit in the steamer with the lid on for at least 5 more minutes. You can also keep it in there to stay warm until you’re ready to serve.
