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.

Japanese Kitchen Tools : Measuring Cup

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Measuring cups are useful for anything. Japanese measuring cups have a standard maximum capacity of 200 ml, so please keep this in mind when preparing Japanese dishes. In this video, I used a measuring cup to make mentsuyu (Japanese noodle soup). This soup is a bit thick, so please dilute it with water or hot water to your liking. It can be used as a sauce for noodle dishes such as udon, soba, and somen, as well as for simmered dishes, etc. It is very versatile, so please try making it!

Cucumbers are high in potassium, making them an ideal vegetable for detoxification, including improving swelling. It is also effective for rehydration as it is 90% water. They also contain alchorubinase, an enzyme that oxidizes vitamin C. It is recommended that vinegar be added to cucumbers or that they be heated.

Japanese Kitchen Tools : Cooking Chopsticks

Categorised in: | Link of this article

An indispensable part of Japanese cooking is the chopsticks called “Saibashi”. They are longer than the chopsticks used for eating, and are used not only while cooking, but also when dividing food among plates. Normally, only two chopsticks are used, but this time I will introduce the cooking chopsticks along with some dishes where using four of them is convenient.
