How to cook rice?

I just bought a big bag of chinese rice because I like the flavor of the sticky stuff you get in chinese restaurants. The problem is, there are no cooking directions.

Up until now, all I've ever cooked is Minute rice, and I'm pretty sure that method won't work on this stuff.

Anyone know how to cook this stuff?

Is is white or brown rice?

Generally you put in a cup to a cup 1/2 for every half cup of rice. Bring the water to a boil. Cover and Reduce it to simmer for 20 minutes for white rice.

Brown hulled rice is double that amount of time.

I usually throw in a splash of olive oil to prevent sticking.

Perfect rice.

And I should know. I'm part flip and eat white rice with every meal of the day. :P

Equal cups of rice to water. Plus add a cup of water. Sooo for 2 cups of rice, you put in 3 cups of water.

Heat it all to a low boil, cover and reduce the heat LOW.

Then leave it alone. Don't touch it or stir it or prod it. Just walk away for 20 minutes. It'll come out perfect.

And don't ever pour butter on it. Or my family will cut you.

Good Eats recently did an episode on sushi and talked about how to cook the sticky-type rice. It was different from the regular way to cook rice. You might pop over to foodtv.com and check the Good Eats section to see if they have the procedure there

Couple questions...

1. Do you presoak it?
2. Do you add the rice to boiling water, or put it all in the pan and let it all heat up at once?

I think presoaking it is a preference for some people, but not necessary.
#2 is only important for pasta, where you add it to boiling water. Rice goes in the pot with the cold water.

Why am I still answering?

If you eat alot of rice do yourself a favor and buy a rice cooker.

Okay, I have an associated question. I prefer the health qualities of brown rice over white. Is there a way to use brown rice to make sushi?

Yeah, a rice cooker is worth it's weight in gold if you're going to eat rice 3 or 4 times a week like I do.

Odds are you can't get brown rice here that is any healthier than the white. Something to do with length it can be stored or something. I'd have to ask that Japanese guy again, but he's in Japan and I'm not.
