I made this and served it with a Japanese chicken. The family loved it. I did not have any instant rice, but used Jasmati rice prepared as the jar directed. The Jasmati is a long grained rice. As I made it, I felt it needed another egg. The long grained plumper rice could very well explain this. With the rice I used, it had a slight hint of nuttyness. I will definitly make it again with instant rice and rereview if warranted.
