How to cook Japanese rice without a rice cooker
Choose a heavy sauce pan.
Add equal amounts of rice and water.
Soak the rice for 10-15 minutes.
Turn on the stove to high, and bring to a boil. The pan should be covered and not opened during the cooking and steaming process.
When it’s boiling, turn the heat to very low. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes, until all the water is absorbed.
Set aside and leave covered for another 10-15 minutes.
