    The better question would be how can they call it minute rice or instant rice when it clearly is not? However to attempt to answer your question, first there is the boiling time of the water or other liquid you might use to cook the rice. Second is the time it takes the water/liquid to be properly absorbed into the rice.

    Because it takes 10 minutes to boil the water and 5 minutes for it to soak and soften. It's called Minute Rice because compared to raw rice, it's done "In a minute" which used to be a very short time.

    I think the "minute" in the name refers to the time you boil it.
