Cooking Rice in a rice cooker
Measure the amount of Jazzmen rice you wish to cook. Use about ¼ to ½ cup of uncooked rice per person.
Place the rice in a sieve. Hold the sieve under cool, running water for about 1 to 2 minutes.
Shake the sieve to allow excess water to drip off. Place the rice in the rice cooker. Add enough water to cover the rice. I do not measure the amount of water for Jazzmen rice with a measuring cup; i use a finger. After covering the rice with water, insert your index finger into the pot until it just touches the top of the rice. Add more water until the liquid just reaches the first joint of your finger.
Turn the rice cooker on. Each brand will have different instructions. Usually, however, a rice cooker has two main settings: "cook" and "keep warm." Adjust the setting to "cook."
Wait for the rice cooker to finish. Do not lift the lid during the cooking time. Depending on the brand, the rice cooker should turn off or turn to "keep warm" automatically when the rice is finished.
