    I use a Panasonic 0.5 litre rice cooker, the one available in India. Yes, there is a cup accompanying the cooker. But I want to know what is the proportion of material to water for the following items. You know like, whether 1:1.5, 1:2 etc. Also, for that capacity, how much of a cup can the rice cooker cook comfortably, without, overflowing with steam bubbles, insufficient water etc. Is there a cheatsheet of water quantity proportions ?
    1. Rice (Sona Masooori, Unboiled)
    2. Moong Dal + Tomato
    3. Sliced carrot + Sliced potato
    4. Moong Dal + Tomato + Carrot + Potato all together
    5. Beaten rice (Aval)
    6. Wheat Rava
    7. Bombay Rava
    8. Rice Rava
    9. Horlicks oats
    10. Beans
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I believe this is an electric rice cooker. So it is more like just putting rice directly in a pot of water and boil it to cook on a stove

    so while oats, rice etc can be cooked easily.. dal varieties will take much longer to get cooked.

    General thumb rule is to use 2.5 cups of water for 1 cup rice. This can vary based on quality of rice and the texture you want it to be cooked.

    Oats, Rava etc generally take 1.5 to 2 cups.

    Regards
    JM

    Thanks. Yes, an electric rice cooker, but no stove. The vessel rests on the plugged plate as in electric rice cookers.
