Very simple and convenient way of making perfect-every-time rice in the microwave. The rice comes out like its been in a proper rice cooker. It really works, and there will be no burnt, stuck to the pan or wet soggy rice unless you're a total plonker when it comes to pouring out water / operating a timer. 1 mug of white rice (Thai jasmine rice is my favourite) serves 2 hungry people. Put it in a bowl with plenty of room for it to expand, add boiling water until there's an inch of water above the rice. If you wish to err on the side of caution you can add a bit more, the rice will quickly absorb excess water when left to stand after cooking. Bung into a 750 - 800 watt microwave for 20 or 15 minutes respectively. Rice should be fluffy when done.
