  • 2024-02-13 – I may have over-thought this. It seemed like too little moisture for the amount of rice. So I put it on and checked / stirred every 5 minutes to make sure it wouldn’t stick. It didn’t but the rice didn’t get done either. I cooked it for another 25 minutes and added a little more water but the rice was still a bit al dente. I’ll probably try again and just let it sit to see if it works as described.
