How to Make It
Put 2 cups of the rice in a medium bowl and cover with cold water. Rub the rice and swirl it with your hand, then drain. Repeat 3 or 4 times or until the water is clear. Drain well.
Bring 10 cups of water to a vigorous boil in a large saucepan. Add 1 tablespoon salt and sprinkle in the rice. Return the water to a rolling boil, stirring occasionally. Boil until the rice is just barely cooked through but still firm, 6 to 8 minutes.
Drain the rice in a sieve and immediately return it to the pot. Cover with a cotton cloth and a tight-fitting lid and let the rice stand off the heat for 15 minutes to steam and firm up. Gently stir the rice to break up any clumps.
