For example, if you want to cook 2 cups of rice, the volume of water required would be 2 cups + 1.5 cups, which gives you total 3.5 cups of water. For 3 cups of rice you would need 4.5 cups of water and so on.
Then place the glass bowl (with rice in it) in the microwave and cook at full power for 15 minutes. Then cover the bawl with a plate suitable for use in microwave and cook for further 5 minutes at full power.
Your rice is ready to serve.
If you want to cook American long grain or par boiled rice you would need to add more water (at least extra 1.5 measures) and cook longer. It needs some trial and error. The good thing is that if you realise that the rice is not cooked due to lack of water, you can always add more cold or hot water and continue to cook until it is done.
You can cook "Pilaw" or "Saffron" rice using the cubes bought from supermarket. Add the cube at the beginning and mixed the rice using a fork after cooking for 10 minutes. Then continue to cook as mentioned above.
You can also add a cube or two of Oxo of varies flavours and cook as for Piaw or Saffron rice.
You can also add sweet corn and peas (frozen), individually or mixed and cook as for plain rice.
If you want to experiment further, you can cook "Kiri Bath" also, but need more water and coconut milk and longer cooking time.
