Measure the rice and add it to the rice cooker pot.
Check the rice package to determine if washing is necessary. If the rice has been pre-washed, there is no need to wash it, so skip that step.
Wash the rice 2 - 3 times then drain it completely.
Measure the water and add it to the pot of rice. (use equal parts of water to rice)
Drain the canned peas before adding it to the pot.
Add the coconut milk powder, all the dried seasoning, all the fresh seasoning and then stir the pot.
Place the pot inside the rice cooker, cover it, plug it in, then press the 'cook' button.
When the water starts to bubble, stir the pot with the spoon provided, then recover the pot.
When the cook button pops up to indicate that the rice is ready, check to see if the rice has the desired texture.
If the grains are too hard, sprinkle approximately 2 tbsp water over the rice, then use a piece of parchment paper or foil to cover the pot. Place the rice cooker cover over the parchment/foil then repress the 'cook' button to allow the rice to steam and 'fluff up'.
If the rice is at the desired texture, replace the cover and let the rice steam for 5 minutes more. If the rice is a bit soft, uncover the rice cooker pot and repress the 'cook' button to allow the rice to dry out a bit.
