How to cook Korean steam rice

Updated: Jul 14

There are two things that are given in Korean cuisine; rice and kimchi. And when I say "rice", just any rice won't do; it has to be Korean rice. All rice are not created equal and you can't get the right taste for your Korean dishes without the right rice. Korean rice is a delicious short, round grain rice with a subtle sweetness. When steamed, it’s wonderfully soft, fluffy and moist, with more flavour than any other rice. Also known as sushi rice, sweet Korean rice is the rice most eaten by Koreans. I may be prejudiced, but this is the only rice for me. Once you try it, you’ll understand.
