Title: Steamed Rice (Korean Bab)
Yield: 4 Servings
Categories: Korean, Vegetarian, Rice


2 c Rice
2 c Water

1. Pour the rice into a cooking pot. Fill the pot nearly to the brim with
cold water, then pour the water out. The rice will remain at the bottom of
the pot. Repeat this process 4 or 5 times, or until the water seems quite
clear. Rinsing the rice in this manner eliminates any excess starch.

2. Cover the rice with 2 cups water and let it stand for 30 minutes. Bring
to a boil, reduce the heat and steam for 20 minutes or until dry.

Generally speaking, if Americans are to be served, use 1/2 cup uncooked
rice for each person. Double the amount if cooking for Koreans, especially
Korean men.
