How to Cook Rice
Japanese white rice is an excellent source of energy and will keep you full in a healthy way. It is naturally gluten free and a great source for making sushi rice dishes such as California Rolls and Inari Sushi. Compared to cooking rice on stovetops, a rice cooker is more convenient as you can set your desired time to complete the cooking and the rice to water ratio is already determined so there is no extra calculation needed. The rice cooker can cook short grain such as Japanese Nishiki rice and long grain such as jasmine rice to complete your meals. Plus, unlike stovetop saucepans cleanup is easy with the nonstick inner pans. Start off the day with some fluffy and delicious white rice.
Japanese brown rice is considered a healthier choice than white rice due to its higher content of fiber, magnesium and zinc.
