How to cook rice

From Classic Chinese recipes

1 1/4 c. rice
1 c. cold water
pinch salt
1/2 tsp. oil (optional)

Rince the rice once.  Place rice in a saucepan and add just enough water so there is no more than 1/2 inch above the surface of the rice.  Bring to a boil, add salt and oil, and stir once to prevent the grains from sticking.   Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes.  Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for about 10 minutes.  Fluff with a fork before serving.
