    Rinse rice with plenty of water to cover and then drain. Place 2 cups of cooking water, rinsed rice and a pinch of salt in a saucepan with lid. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, without stirring, for 50 minutes. Turn off heat and let steam-cook another 10 minutes. Turn out into a non-metal bowl and allow to cool.
