using a pressure cooker or a rice cooker or you can also
cook it in a pot on a stove.

If you are using long grain basmati rice, you need 1 1/2 cups water for each cup of rice.
For short grain rice, you will need about 2 cups of water for each cup of rice. The quantity of water will depend on the variety of rice and also on how old rice is.
New rice needs less water. Adding more water than necessary will make the rice mushy, too soft or like a paste.
Adding too little will not
cook the rice properly.
The rice is perfectly cooked when rice is cooked soft but each grain is separate.
