Then reduce the heat to low, cover with a tight-fitting lid and slowly cook for 20 - 25 minutes, until all the water is absorbed and the rice is tender and fluffy.

I've been tuning into being a lurker for quite some time now.
I figured that I will get involved and communicate with the people here.
I'm expecting to connect with a great deal of entertaining people and discover some outstanding stuff.

I'm hoping this didn't get put in an inappropriate category. Forgive me if "eGullet" is unsuitable.
