Rice is so cheap. My preference is Basmati rice. I used to buy "Boil in the Bag Rice" which is expensive for what it is.
I sucked at cooking regular rice in a pot, always ended up gloopy, which was a shame because it's much cheaper to buy regular rice.
I got myself a rice cooker for 20 euro (which also has a steamer) and now I make rice for most my meals. Just dump in however much rice you want with the correct amount of water (I use 2 water : 1 rice), turn it on and you have perfect rice in 15-20 mins.
I always put on lots of rice to either eat there and then, have for lunch, stir fried rice the next day etc.
Some people may cook rice fine in a pot but personally for me, putting rice in a rice cooker and pressing a button for perfect rice was well worth 20 euro to me.
Btw don't forget to rinse your rice !!
