Accessories you need



This makes a small bowl of rice, suitable as a side dish, or addition to things like tacos and burritos.

If you'd like to make it more of a main dish, add extra rice and water/stock to the jug, stirring at 5-10 minute intervals, checking that your jug doesn't dry out by lifting the basket.

Frozen veggies such as pea and corn could be added at step 10.
