Buy yourself a rice cooker, one of the most useful things on the planet. You can just put it in and forget about it. Makes the rice perfect every time, as a side dish, for rice salads, or fried rice or risotto. The one I got has a setting for plain rice, risotto, or even stir fry (you can stir fry vegetables and chopped meat in it, useful for fried rice). I got one after regularly burning the bottoms of my sauce pans when I forgot to turn pan off. Burnt rice is the worst.
