1/2 cup of uncooked instant rice equals 1 cup cooked rice
1 cup uncooked regular rice = 3 cups cooked rice
Instant rice is actually pre-cooked rice.
When making a recipe that originally calls for uncooked instant rice, I used regular rice. I cook the rice and add it to the recipe at the same time the recipe calls for the instant rice.
If the recipe calls for 1/2 cup instant rice (which results in 1 cup of cooked rice), I substitute one cup of cooked regular rice.
