In Asia, rice is regarded as a bland base and contrast for richly sauce dishes and it is usually eaten in the ratio of seven parts rice to three parts other food. A typical Asian serving would be 100g of rice per head. Western diners like a higher ratio of main dish food to their rice, and the usual serving is 60-90g per person.
In some parts of Asia, electric rice cookers have become very popular. These are worth the expense only if you frequently cook large quantities of rice. The simple and effective way to cook perfect, fluffy rice is to use what many homes already have, which is a microwave oven.
