How Long to Boil Rice
If you're cooking one cup of rice in a pot on the stove, it will take 17 minutes; larger quantities of rice will take slightly longer.
Before you start boiling, you need to make sure you have the correct ratio of water to rice. For every cup of rice, you'll need 2 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil, then add in your rice. The boil will slow when you do this. As soon as it returns to a full boil, reduce the heat and cover the pot. You'll want the water and rice to maintain a consistent simmer from here. You'll know the rice is done when the water has all been absorbed into the rice.
