Cooking Jasmine Rice in Microwave

Last week I wrote a blog about how to cook sticky rice using microwave. But I've realized that some people are also interested to know how to cook plain rice like Jasmine Rice with Microwave. Most of Asian families have rice cooker.. but this is not common if you're not an Asian. But if you like the taste of Asian food, especially they are nice with steamed rice, you don't need a rice cooker. Just your microwave can do.

This is a very simple way to cook Jasmine Rice with microwave.

1. Measure 1.5 cup of Jasmine Rice and rinse with water, put in the microwavable bowl

2. Add 2 cup of water into the bowl

3. Put in the microwave on High for 10 minutes

4. Bring the bowl out of the microwave and use a spoon or a spatula to stir the rice in the bowl. At this point, the rice is not yet cooked.

5. Put back in the microwave for another 5 minutes on High.

6. After this the rice should be well cooked and ready to eat.
