## Why does my rice come out mushy?

If you use too much water, the grains can become mushy, and too little water can re-harden the rice, causing it to stick to the bottom of the pan. The same amount of water will boil off each time, so subtract the amount of rice from the amount of water in your original perfect batch.

## How do you measure rice for water?

It’s simple: pour the rice into the pan you’re going to cook it in. Level it out and place your index finger so that it is touching the surface of the rice. Add enough water so that it comes up to your first knuckle — I usually use the crease on the palm-side of my finger.
