Basic Japanese White Rice

Japanese White Rice

Ratio: 2 Cups dry Japanese white rice for 5-6 people.

Wash the rice by rinsing 2 or 3 times in cold water. The rice should be swished around several times in the cold water before discarding the water (note-this discarded water is excellent for feeding plants).

To one cup dry rice add 1 1/4 cups water
Soak the rice for at least one hour in the rice cooker
Turn on the rice cooker and begin the cooking process at least 60 minutes before serve up time (noon).

After the rice cooker stops “cooking”, the rice should have at least 20 minutes to continue sitting in the “keep warm” stage.

When removing the rice from the cooker into the serving bowls do it quickly so as not to lose heat. Cover the rice immediately.

Well cooked rice comes out soft.
