To get the best results from cooking Jasmine rice well is to use minimal water, so that the rice is steamed rather than boiled. If you prefer to boil it, measure 1 1/2 cups water to 1 cup of rice and bring to the boil in a covered pot. Turn down heat to a simmer for about 20 minutes until the rice is cooked all the way through. Then gently fluff with a fork and cover the rest for another 5 minutes before serving. Either way Jasmine rice needs to be rinsed before cooking.
