How to cook simple rice?

1 cup of long-grain white rice 2 cups of water Salt (to taste) Optional: 1 tablespoon of butter or oil Instructions: Rinse the rice: Place the rice in a fine-mesh sieve and rinse it under cold water until the water runs clear. This helps remove any excess starch and prevents the rice from becoming sticky. Cook the rice: In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the rinsed rice, water, and a pinch of salt. If desired, add butter or oil to enhance the flavor and prevent sticking. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer: Once the water comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and cover the saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Allow the rice to simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until all the water has been absorbed. Avoid lifting the lid while the rice is cooking to ensure even cooking. Let it rest: Once the rice is cooked, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it sit, covered, for about 5 minutes. This resting period allows the rice to steam and become fluffy. Fluff the rice: After the resting time, remove the lid and use a fork to fluff the rice gently. This helps separate the grains and prevents clumping. Serve and enjoy: Your rice is now ready to be served as a side dish or as a base for other recipes. Enjoy! Note: The cooking times may vary slightly depending on the type of rice you use, so it's always a good idea to check the package instructions for specific cooking times and ratios of rice to water.
