I like ‘Takikomigohan’, a dish of Rice that is cooked with other ingredients and all seasoning. I particularly love ‘Takikomigohan’ that is seasoned with Soy Sauce, and I sometimes crave it. When I don’t want to bother preparing other ingredients, I cook this ‘Soy Sauce Rice’. It’s just Rice, but cooked in Dashi Stock seasoned with Soy Sauce. DO NOT underestimate it. It is yummy and perfect for Onigiri.


4 Servings


2 cups (*180ml cup) Japanese Short Grain Rice
1 teaspoon Dashi Powder
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Mirin
Toasted Sesame Seeds, Spring Onion, Shiso, Nori, etc. for topping

  1. Wash Rice and place in the rice cooker’s inner pot. Add Water up to the 2-cups marking, add Dashi Powder, Soy Sauce and Mirin, and gently stir.
  2. Press ‘COOK’ button to start cooking. When the rice is cooked, let it steamed for 10 minutes. Then loosen and mix gently.
  3. Sprinkle with some Toasted Sesame Seeds, finely chopped Spring Onion, shredded Nori, OR Shiso, etc. and enjoy. This Rice is good for Onigiri.
