Step 2: COOK RICE

Place jasmine rice, 1¼ cups water and a pinch of salt and pepper in medium pot over medium heat. Bring to boil; cover and reduce heat to low. Cook 15-20 min until tender. Fluff with fork. While rice is cooking, begin making the crust (Step #3). Note: If the rice has absorbed the water but isn’t fully cooked after 15-20 min; add ¼ cup water, cover and cook for 8-10 min longer.
