Do these same instructions still apply if long grain white rice is all I have in the house? I'm so anxious to try this right now LOL

How much in grams is 1 cup?

Fyrhp says:

I'm usually too impatient so i skip rinsing and soaking, and just simmer it for 17min haha

Hi, i bough a japanese rice measuring cup from daiso, would the measurements be different then? how do i cook rice for two persons?

sakurasama17 says:

Hi! I can't wait to try this. How would the instructions change if I used short grain brown rice? With the water and cooking time?

Charlie ZA says:

How do you steam the rice? Do you just leave the pot covered while hot and leave for 10 mins?

Ashley - Taylor says:

so if you don't have a rice cooker and you use this method does the water have to be scalding? I know this video is old but I'm sorry about your hand! Also does the pot have to be ceramic or can you use a regular metal pot? One more question you don't drain the rice after you take it off the stove right? you just let it sit. You're going to think i'm silly but I honestly never thought about how to make sticky rice without a rice cooker before.

Hi there,
Thanks for sharing your recipe and this video…I have a question….Can I use this method for rice sushi? I don't have a rice cooker but I want to make sushi at home…Thanks

Lionel Matsuya says:

I grew up with my family making rice like this several times a week. Very few people in the UK cook rice like this – they tend to boil it in too much water and then strain it. I know which method I prefer! (Though most of that is because I use Japanese short grain rice rather than long grain rice – the taste is so different.)

Jennifer T. Lacey says:

Thanks for this. Followed your instructions and my rice came out perfect!!

Sandra Garth says:

Hope your hand is better. I have never soaked the rice before and that's probably why it rarely turns out right. Thanks for this video.

Dedicated to your craft, methinks. :)
