How to Cook Steamed White Rice (Gohan) in a Pot Recipe | OCHIKERON | Create Eat Happy :)

This will reveal you how to prepare steamed/ boiled rice in a pot on a stove.

I currently have a "How to Cook Steamed White Rice (Gohan) with a Rice Cooker"

however, I received a lot of ask for the rice recipe without utilizing a rice cooker, so i made this tutorial.

Rice is the staple of Japan, so most have a rice cooker at home and we rice in practically every meal. In fact, we consume any sort of dishes with rice. Utilizing a rice cooker is convenient, however you can naturally utilize a pot to prepare rice, too;D.

Pipitto Konro "ピピッとコンロ" is a gas cooking range with sensing unit that does all the heat changes instantly! If you have an opportunity to reside in Japan, I advise to get this stove!!!

Note: rice is brief grain rice and gets sticky when it is cooked. So, make certain you don't utilize long grain rice since it is drier and doesn't stick together.

How to Prepare Steamed White Rice (Gohan) in a Pot.

Problem: Super Easy.
Time: approx. 30min.
Variety of portions: 4 (2 cups of rice).

2 cups = 320g (11.3 oz.) Japanese-style rice.
water 440cc.

1. Measure the rice with a determining cup and put it into a bowl. Use the measuring cup for Japanese rice (you can get it at a Japanese grocery store) or procedure 320g (11.3 oz.) rice.
2. Wash the rice with cold water. When it comes to 2 cups, wash 4 or 5 times. Water does not need to be clear but somewhat tidy. Then drain.
3. Location the rice in a pot and add water. Let the rice take in the water at least 30 minutes.
4. Without a lid, set on high heat and boil. When the rice begins to boil, stir and cover (utilize a cover without a hole, or if you have a hole on your lid, seal it with aluminum foil). Then set to low heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until water is soaked up and rice is prepared – you can quickly peep into the pot and check.
5. When it's done, do closed and let it steam for about 15 minutes. If you like "Okoge" which is the burnt rice left in the bottom of a rice cooker, turn the heat to high and turn off (and steam for about 15 minutes) when you hear the crackling sound.
6. Toss the rice gently with a spoon or a rice paddle so that it is fluffed a bit but still clumps enough to be gotten with chopsticks.
7. Serve!

  2. I’m so glad you posted this! I don’t have a rice cooker right now, but this process still looks pretty simple. Hopefully I’ll get a rice cooker someday, though. Thanks!

  3. I’ve been trying to figure out how to cook the perfect rice for ages now, thank you so much for this tutorial, my rice came out very nice and fluffy! 🙂 I am just enjoying it with some beef pörkölt (beef stew), it’s absolutely delicious! Thank you!

  4. I went out and bought Japanese rice and cooked it last night. I loved it! thank you so much!

  5. Thanks so much for this! I’ve missed rice so much since I’ve been back in the US and I don’t have a Japanese rice cooker yet! This will hold me over until I can get one!

  6. Thanks so much for this video! I have cooked rice since I as a small girl and never did it this way. So, naturally, it never tasted like the lovely rice at the restaurant! I will try cooking it your way tomorrow. I will comment and let you know if I had success or failure. I am excited! Cheers!

  7. Hello Ochi!
    My family’s rice cooker broke so my parents have been cooking rice on the stove, but today they weren’t home and I wanted to cook some so I watched this video for help. It was a success! The rice came out nice and fluffy! ♥
    Thank you so much for this tutorial! ^_^

  8. Damn you did that like a pro. I never rinsed the rice before I never knew you had to 😮. Thanks for the video

  9. Thank you! Didn’t feel well today and decided to make @emmymadeinjapan ‘s jok recipe. I’m not an experienced cook so didn’t know how to make white rice! :O but this is a great video, thank you!! <3

  10. Hiii, first of all I want to thank you for all the recipes you’re teaching to us. I always wanted to do some Japanese foods by myself and your tutorials help me a lot (and look really yummy and delicious..I hope to make something good like your recipes lol XD)
    But one question, in Japan when you make the rice don’t you need to put salt or anything into it? I usually do the brasilian rice and we put some salt and sometimes vegetables. . only rice and water? thank you!! ^—^ ♥

  11. Thank you =) my rice cooker broke a couple of days ago and I have a brand new bag of rice. This video helped me so much by cooking the rice the basic way. Thank you xoxoox

  12. Yes, so easy to cook rice the traditional way.  Thanks for sharing the video.

  13. I always have prepared the rice the old way in pot, however now with my twins asking for more and more rice I’m considering to get a rice maker but everyone seems to have their own favorite brand and haven’t decided for one. Which brand/model would you recommend? Thank you!

  14. Where I live, the burnt rice at the bottom is called “bola de pegao” which means “sticky rice ball” in spanish and my cousins always fight over it xD
    Also, a stove that cooks by itself and tells you when the food is ready is genius!

  15. Hi
    Thanks for this video and good instructions, i have been trying to cook Japanese rice in my German mess tin when out in the forest, but so far it has not been to good due to the water rice ratio not being correct, i will now try with your measurements.

  16. I agree with lots of users here. I cooked steamed rice today and it turned out so well. Thank you Ochikeron 😗
