Tonight I cooked some brown rice on my propane stove.  I started with 1.5 cups of rice and added water.  I was taught a trick to add water to about double the height of the even layer of rice.  That's the method I use for "measuring".

Here are the images.

so cooked 2 cups of buckwheat, soaked it for about 8 hours in warm water.

drained and rinsed it about 5 times as it is quite gelatinous.

add 3 cups of water and bring to a boil

once boiled i added 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 teaspoon of salt.
simmer for about 15 minutes or less.

Staff note (Rob Lineberger) :

This is most certainly done! I am curious why your pot has no handles, I've never seen that. But definitely 2 cups of cooked grain.
