How much water is needed for this recipe to cook the rice?

Sorry Francine. I didn't think about putting the amount of water. I normally use the first line on my index finger to gauge the water amount but you can use 1 cup water for each cup of rice.

1 cup uncooked rice = 1 cup of water

Thank you for stopping by.
