 I learned to make rice from an Asian women who said when I asked her how  to measure.  

She said one finger joint of water above the rice.

Depends on where you are. In most places you put down the glass, then set your index
finger on the bar sideways. Fill the glass to the width of the finger. But most people
order two fingers, which would represent the width of the index and long fingers

In Peru I learned to stand the index and long fingers on their tips and fill the glass
up to the finger-palm joint (metacarpophalangeal joint.)
