Rice can be cooked in water or in steam, that is one variable. The temperature of the water or steam can vary. The quantity of the water or steam can vary. The quantity of the rice can also vary. The type of rice can vary (long grain or short grain, for example). The length of cooking time can vary. The type of cooking pot can vary. You can also add salt to the water, or other additives as well (some people like chicken broth in their rice) or just use pure water.
