Most processes are the same as described above with the only change being the amount of water and use of a pan rather than a cooker. Add rice and water in proportion of 1:2 and cook on a low medium flame using a heavy bottomed pan. After some time, the excess water will start to evaporate.When this happens, lower the flame and cook it till the water completely evaporates.
