Add onion and cook, stirring, until onion is translucent (about 5 minutes).
Add rice and stir until opaque (about 2 minutes).
Add broth and water (use 1 1/4 cups water for short-grain rice, 1 1/2 cups water for medium-grain rice).
Increase heat to high and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and boil very gently, uncovered, just until rice is tender to bite (20 to 25 minutes); stir occasionally at first, then more frequently as liquid is almost absorbed.
Add more broth or water, 1/4 cup at a time, if needed to prevent sticking.
