How Long to Cook White Rice
White rice is a versatile food that can be incorporated into a wide variety of delicious dishes. However, while white rice seems simple enough, cooking it can prove to be tricky for many people. Particularly when it comes to how long to cook white rice.
One cup of white rice will generally take about 17 minutes to fully cook but it may take as long as 25 minutes. It's around the 17-minute mark you'll want to start regularly checking whether or not the rice has absorbed all of the water. Once it has, leave the rice covered for another minute or two but make sure to turn off the heat first.
