  3. Pour in pigeon peas (gandules) and let boil for a minute.

  5. Stir ONCE and put the lid on it, sealing tightly.
  6. Let sit for 20 minutes on low-medium.
  7. If the rice looks gummy DO NOT STIR IT, just put the lid back on and wait until the rice is firm (ready).
  8. If you desire the crunchiness on the bottom, once the rice is done cooking, put the temp on very low temp and let it sit for about 5 minutes. The bottom will loosen up from the moisture (since it it's done cooking).
