Making rice can be the most important thing to master when it comes to Japanese food and Japanese cooking.

In this video, I'm introducing how to make rice in a pot, so that everyone in the world can try making it!

Cooking rice in a clay pot is the best! The rice will be shiny and sweet. Just amazingly tasty! If you want to elevate your rice to the next level, please give it a try!




<Yield> 2 servings

<Prep time> 5 minutes (without soaking time)

<Cook time> 25 minutes


1 cup (150g) Japanese sushi rice

1 cup (200ml) water


1. Rinse the rice. Soak the rice in water overnight or for at least 1 hour. In a pot, add in the drained rice and fresh water. Pop the lid on and bring it to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes remove from heat and let it steam for an additional 15 minutes.

2. Open the lid and mix the rice with your spatula. Make a mixing motion from the bottom to top. Serve it in a bowl and now it's ready to be enjoyed.

<Miwa’s tips> ※watch to learn more tips on YouTube!

・Do not open the lid until you finish the steaming process.

・When you mix the rice, try not to mash the rice grains.

・If you are going to freeze the rice, freeze it before it gets cold to keep the aroma of rice.

<Storage time>

Freeze them for up to 1 month.

Hi Miwa, would the directions be the same for short grain brown rice? I just got this rice, Sukoyaka Genmai, whole grain brown rice and was wondering if it would be the same water ratio and cook time. Thank you! Love your recipes!
