- 3 1/2 cups of water

- 3 cups of long grain or extra long grain white rice
- Although not an ingredient, you will need a cooking pan with a cover


1. Add salt, water and oil to your cooking pan
2. Turn your stove to high and bring water to a boil
3. Add rice and keep your stove on high (with the cover off)
4. Allow rice and water to boil until water evaporates
5. Cover rice and turn your stove to low heat
6. Leave covered for 25 minutes at low heat. Uncover rice and move it around so that the rice that was at the bottom of the pan is now at the top.
7. Cover rice again for another 20 minutes
8. Rice is ready to serve!

Caribbean folks (for the most part) cook their rice so that the consistency is dry and grainy/loose when cooked. In other words, it is NOT sticky. If the rice is too dry or hard for your taste, add an additional 1/2 cup of water each time you experiement with this recipe until you get the consistency you desire.
If you don't follow these instructions exactly, your rice will become sticky. For example, you must not put your raw rice into the cooking pan until the water is boiling, otherwise, it will absorb water while it waits for the water to boil"
Moving the rice around in step 6 allows your three cups of rice to cook more evenly
