Basic Japanese White Rice

Perfect Japanese rice is pearly white and sticky enough to pick up with chopsticks. The initial rinsing process rids the grains of the powdered bran and polishing compound, and plumps them with water to render them tender and delicious.

This recipe goes with Vegetable Maki
