I love my rice cooker.
I also like rice with stuff in, makes an easy quickish dinner.
I sometimes cook up some stuff, say mushrooms, chilli and garlic fried in a bit of olive oil, or small chunks of pork, some browned onions and broccoli florets with paprika, and then add that to my rice + water (which I have measured before I add the extras) before I cook it.
Then I stick the rice cooker on and let it do its magic, and 20 mins or so later, a tasty rice and stuff one bowl meal.
My problem is that sometimes the rice ends up a little undercooked and I need to add a bit more water and cook for a little longer. And if I add a bit too much water, the rice at the bottom can get a bit mushy.
So how can I better judge if I'm going to need to add any extra water and if so approximately how much? Will it depend on what I've added to the pot, and how much, relative to the rice?
