Cooking Rice without a Rice Cooker

The snow storm caused a blackout and we didn't have electricity for a day and a half. Curry was already planned for dinner so I attempted cooking rice on the stove (again... never had succeeded in doing this). But this time I followed directions from a cookbook and... SUCCESS!
Wash 3 cups (540ml) rice and drain in colander for 30 minutes. Add 600 ml water in a pot, add the rice, and let sit 10 minutes. Cover with lid, turn on heat to medium-low, and when it starts to boil, let boil for 2 minutes. Turn down the heat and let simmer 10 minutes. After the simmering, turn the heat on high for 10 seconds or so, just to remove any leftover moisture. Turn heat off, and let steam for 10 minutes. After which you can open the lid, stir the rice, and enjoy!
