Japanese Kitchen Tools : Rice Measuring Cup

Categorised in: | Link of this article

The lightweight cup for Japanese rice is 1 cup (180 ml) and it is called “1 合(Ichi Gou)”. The key to cooking good rice is not to wash the rice too much. Soak the rice once in water, then discard it and stir it without water. A milky, starchy liquid will come out, which is then poured off. Repeat this two or three times until the water becomes slightly clear. Then cook the rice in a regular Japanese lightweight cup with 200 ml of water per cup.
