MAKING THE RICE Wash the rice at least four times and rinse. Soak the rice for 15 to 20 minutes. In a pan, add the water, salt, and the spices. Let it come to a boil. Rinse the rice and add to the boiling water. When the water boils again, cover the pan and reduce heat to lowest. Cook for 25 minutes.
