Lower the flame and cook the rice till all the water would be absorbed and the rice grains would be cooked well. Press cooked rice grain with your thumb, it should be soft and mash easily. If no, it means the grains need to be cooked for some more time. When the rice is cooked, give it rest for 5 minutes, before you open the lid.
