Rice


Although rice consumption in Japanese households is declining, rice is still a mainstay and deeply entrenched in the Japanese mind. Japanese people even call each meal "gohan (cooked rice)", such as "asa (morning) -gohan" for breakfast. A bowl of rice is included in most of Japanese meals. Rice is cultivated all over in Japan and brown rice is becoming popular!

Japanese rice is a short grain rice and is known as sticky rice because it gets sticky when cooked. Let's learn how to cook Japanese rice properly:

What You Need:
  • 2 cups Japanese rice, such as Nishiki and Hikari
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • Deep pot with lid /Rice cooker
  1. Put the rice in a bowl and wash with cold water.
  2. Repeat washing until the water becomes clear.
  3. Drain the rice in a colander
  4. Place rice in a pot or in a rice cooker.
  5. Add measured water.
  6. Let rice soak in water for at least 30 min. One hour is ideal.
  7. If you are cooking the rice in a pot, cover the pan with a lid and bring to a boil over high heat.
  8. Once the water boils, turn the heat down very low and cook about 15-20 min. until the water is almost gone.
  9. Turn off heat and let it steam for 10-15 minutes before opening the lid.
Tips:
  1. If you are using an electric rice cooker, you don't have to worry about adjusting the heat. You still need to let the cooked rice steam before you open the lid.
  2. Japanese rice gets sticky when it is cooked. Long grain rice isn't best for Japanese cooking because it is drier and doesn't stick together well.
ENJOY!
