  • 1 tablespoon oil - canola vegetable, or safflower
  • 1 teaspoon table salt I use Diamond Crystal
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic powder
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 1/2 cups water 1 3/4 cups if you like it stickier


  • Add the oil to a 1 1/2 or 2 quart saucepan.
  • Sprinkle in the salt and garlic powder, covering bottom of pan.
  • Put the heat on medium high.
  • When the garlic powder just starts to turn the slightest color, carefully pour in the water.
  • Rinse or don't rinse your rice. If you like it fluffy and each grain its own being then rinse. If you like it a little sticky don't rinse.
  • Stir in the rice.
  • Wait for the water to come to a boil. When it comes to a boil, turn the heat to a low simmer and cover. Cook for 20 minutes. Fluff it up with fork.
  • ¡Al Ataque!
