on a medium to high flame cook the rice without the lid.
cook till the rice grains become al dente or just cooked.
remove the pot from fire and strain the rice. while straining, you can also gently rinse the rice in water so that they stop cooking and don't stick to each other. you can also fluff the rice with a fork and keep aside. cover the rice and keep aside till the rice cools completely.
