so the lady left on a jet plane, and one of the first things I did was to haul my solar panel out of storage and try cooking rice with the stainless steel immersion heater, the one that overheated my yogurt. it didn't work. I came home after my jog to find still about 3/8" of water above the rice. it had been "cooking" all day, but obviously the temperature never reached enough to do the job.
so I put it on my butane-converted-to-propane stove, and in about 15 minutes the water had been absorbed into the rice. I hayboxed it for another 15 minutes and it was perfect. not too soggy, not hard in the middle. I've never achieved that with rice from the Mexican grocery stores. this was smuggled-in organic long-grain Basmati, gifted to me by someone who inexplicably loves me.
