Rice is most often eaten as plain rice ( nasi putih ) with just a few protein and vegetable dishes as side dishes. Here’s how to make it.This is the most basic way to cook regular plain white rice to be used as a side dish.
- 1 cup white rice
- 2 cups water
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Rinse and stir the rice very well under water until the resulting water becomes clear.
- In a pan over medium heat, bring the water to a boil and add in the salt. Slowly stir in the rice then let it boil and cook at lower heat for about 20 minutes.
- Drain the remaining water, if any left, and gently fluff the rice with a fork. You can dry the rice in a pre-heated 250°C oven for 5 to 10 minutes to dry and remove it's boiled taste.
