Step 2: Pour the drained rice into a rice cooker along with some water. Pour in just enough water so that the palm of your hand is covered. Ensure that you do not add too much water, as the rice will be soggy. If you add too little water, the rice will be hard.

Step 3: Place the lid on, and turn the rice cooker on.

Step 4: The rice cooker will steam the rice automatically, and turn off when its done. At the end you will have delicious and fluffy steamed rice ready to eat. To add extra flair, place the rice into a small bowl and pack it tightly. Place a plate on top of the bowl, and turn the bowl upside down so that the rice comes out in a dome shape on the plate.
