WASHING: You don't have to wash it, but if you'd really like to, add the rinse to a colander and rinse once under tap water. WASHING RICE TAKES AWAY THE STARCH
SOAKING: This particular recipe is for cooking with raw unsoaked rice.
White Rice: I've used a short grain variety called Ponni Parboiled Rice here. Click on the ingredient for the product.
Rice and Water Ratio: I've used a fairly aged white parboiled rice here so it cooks well with 2.5 cups of water; you can use this as a guideline. And reduce water the next time, if you see any water left. Or increase it if you find the rice undercooked (which means the rice is really old).
Age of rice: Aged rice does not mean it is bad. As far as the flavor of rice goes, the flavor is enhanced as it ages.
