One cup of cooked rice equals how many cups of uncooked rice?

One cup of cooked rice is made from one-third cup of dried rice. Most dried rice triples in volume when cooked due to the 2:1 ratio used in the cooking process.

While the proportions and cooking times of different types of rice vary, one cup of dry rice usually yields 3 to 4 cups of rice when cooked. Rice types with long and entire grains yield slightly more than those with medium and short grains.

Cook rice according to package directions, or combine rice, water, salt, and butter in a saucepan. Bring the water to a boil. Cover and lower the heat. Two-thirds cup of water is usually used for one-third cup of dried rice.
