How to cook rice in the microwave.


  • 2 cups white rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 pinch salt


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large microwave-safe glass bowl with a lid. Stir.
  2. Cover, and place the bowl on a microwave-safe plate (as it may boil over during cooking), and place in the microwave. Microwave on medium for 16 minutes.
  3. Leave to sit in the microwave for 4 minutes after cooking.
  4. Remove the lid (carefully, as there may be a lot of hot steam), and fluff with a fork before serving.
