First time EVER to make perfect rice!!! I was skeptical that these instructions would work, because most rice instructions say to put 2 parts water and 1 part rice. This method is 1 to 1 instead. I thought to myself that the rice would not have enough water and would turn out hard and uncooked. But despite my doubt, I tried these instructions EXACTLY how they were given. To my (pleasant) surprise, the rice turned out PERFECT!!! Finally, a go-to recipe to achieve perfect consistency of rice. I am soooooooo excited :D After years of mushy, gross rice.. I've found the way!
Thanks for sharing, the rice came out tasty and the texture was nice and sticky. However, some of the rice (on the bottom) was hard and uncooked. I followed the directions precisely on my first attempt. The second time I let it boil and simmer longer, but there was still uncooked rice at the bottom. Does anybody know why this happened and how I can fix it? I tried scooping the uncooked rice out and putting it in a bowl w/ water and microwaving it, but that didn't work out.
Excellent method! It produced the texture that I always try for (and fail). Thanks for posting this!
Great advice for cooking short grain rice, which is something I did for the first time today! following this recipe gave me perfect sticky rice which topped of our dinner of Thai Pineapple Curry :O) Yum.
Consistently, this has been my go to recipe for short grained rice. I make it in a regular pot with a good tight lid. The timing is perfect, and it never-ever-never comes out wrong. Thank-you!
EXCELLENT!!! Thanks for the all the detailed guidance. I love when recipes tell you every alternative. This comes out perfect every time!
i was hesitant to make this, but only because i just barely learned how to make my regular white rice without it being sticky and mushy. however, i love steamed rice but we don't have a steamer. i'm not the greatest cook in the world, and i haven't fully developed my cooking instinct. so when i was making it, i wasn't sure if i was hearing everything right. the dancing part was easier to hear for me than the hiss because it was hard for me to hear the bubbling. however, i must've been right because it came out perfect. the bottom wasn't browned but i don't mind. i didn't think it was going to take quite so long but it was worth it. i'm sure it was amusing for my family to see me sitting next to the stove on a stool leaning towards the pot to try to hear it, but i'm glad i did :) the rice came out perfectly sticky like in a steamer! thanks so much for sharing the art of making japanese rice just right!
A never fail method for cooking rice. I'm sure this will be cherished by us rice lovers!
My japanese grandma showed me this but she also measured the rice/water ratio with her fingertips. Don't ask me how but it worked everytime for her...i have always measured though because I dont trust myself haha
Awemazing! The first time I have ever fixed rice that my husband would eat!!!
