It was real hard to cook rice manually without using a rice cooker. It was tough at first. It was very funny; my mom taught some valuable techniques to cook rice perfectly. I started cooking it myself when I was 12 years old.

I can't remember how young I was. My family has always used a rice cooker - so as soon as I could measure rice and water then push I button I was doing it.

Hi nengs10, Though my mum used to teach me how to cook rise from my age of 12, I totally learnt it by 15. After that I started cooking whenever my mom went to my native. That time I used to cook all other foods. After my marriage, once when my all relatives were there in my house, I cooked food for them and got "good cook" award from them. Good Luck.

i have learned to cook rice at very young age. I guessed in our place young girls have to learned it no choice. I think i was 8 or 10 years old when i learned how to cook rice though i am not saying i am very good at that age but thats when i knew the basics to cook rice. We cooked it manually and use firewood to cook. I was in college already when we have a rice cooker but still didnt used it to save electricity and we have just used it just 5 years ago when siblings have already grown up and have own families.

Rice - Cooked just right
hmmm...when did I first learn to cook rice? I can't really remember when. I didn't know how to cook anything before I was married...but I did know how to make rice (well..that's because I didn't consider it cooking). I had always been doing it...maybe my mother thought it was the best chore to give me since I never learnt how to make any main dish. We never used a rice cooker and I still don't. I do it the old fashioned way...rice in boiling water and strain it. There's a saying here that if you can cook perfect rice (without it being overcooked) for 10 people, then you are an excellant cook. Well, all I can say in that regard is that I am an excellant cook even though I can't cook other dishes very well (but I'm learning and getting to be as good as my mother).

I learned to cook when I was still in my late grade school days. I'm the eldest of three, my father works abroad and my mother's the one left to tend for the three of us. So as the eldest, I helped my mother in some house-chores. She told and taught me how to do such chores, whenever she's busy doing something else. I guess we're on the same when taught how to cook rice, at first I was in the "trial and error" stage but somehow managed to pull one out for good and so the rest was history..
