Perfect White Rice

It’s not easy to cook a perfect, fluffy rice for you for the first time, right? Basically, it’s like Thai Cuisine101 for Thai people to know how to cook rice.

When I moved to the states and had to make rice, I had some struggles cooking it properly. So here’s a small trick for you to do it on your own.

For people who don’t have a Thai grocery around your neighborhood (which always have a really good quality Jasmine rice) I recommend ‘Kirkland’ brand. You can find it in most Costco locations and it’s imported from Thailand. So far the quality has been good.

What you need? Of course, a rice cooker. It doesn’t matter for the size and function since they work the same.

How to do it? This is how I measure my rice to get a perfect result not too mushy or too dry.

Please try my instructions below.

1 cup of rice use 1 cup of water (If you use 1/2 cup of water the bottom might get burned)

2 cups of rice use 1 1/2 cups of water

3 cups of rice use 2 1/2 cups of water

4 cups of rice use 3 1/2 cups of water and so on.


  • 2 cups Jasmine rice
  • 1 1/2 cups Water
  1. Rinse the rice with water until water cleared (about 8-10 times).
  2. Add filtered water into the pot.
  3. Put the pot in the machine, cover with its lit and don’t forget to choose ‘Cook’ option. Let the machine work.
  4. When it’s done I recommend to lightly fold/stir them from the bottom on top. Cover it again and let them steam for another 3-5 minutes.
  5. If you have a hard time to clean the pot you can soak them with water for an hour or overnight then clean it with soap and sponge.
