Ingredients: Brown Sushi Rice from Hyogo, Japan (Ryu no Hitomi brand short grain brown rice)
How to cook:
(Serves 2 bowls of rice)
150g (180ml), Brown sushi rice
200g, filtered water
- If you are using a rice cooker with the water guidelines on it, you can follow the "brown rice" water line.
- Pour water up to the line and let it soak for 7 - 8 hours. This is a longer soaking time compared to Japanese white rice due to the fact that this is brown sushi rice and needs to be soaked longer. By allowing the rice to soak for a sufficient time, the result after cooking will be puffier and better.
- After soaking, press the "cook" button and cook as usual. Serve hot! (But... letting it cool and having cold brown rice is also nice too! )
