We Japanese don't simply cook white rice but we add something in addition. There are many different kinds of rice products in Japan. In this video, I will show you what I love to add in my rice daily with a quick tutorial :D The first rice product is the cereal rice. We call it zakkokumai (雑穀米). It's a package with many different types of cereals. zakkokumai is high in fiber and very colorful :D Then another product I love to add in my rice is Mannanhikari (マンナンヒカリ). It is a rice shaped konjac food. By cooking the rice with Mannanhikari, you can save calories (up to 33%)! This product is also high in fiber!!!

1. Measure the Rice: Measure the rice with a measuring cup and put it into the cooking pot. Most of the time the measuring cup comes with your rice cooker!
2. Rinse the Rice: With cold water, wash the rice. As for 2 cups, wash 4 or 5 times. Water does not have to be clear but somewhat clean.
3. Add Water: Add water to the appropriate level indicated in the pot. If you have time, let the rice soak in the water at least 30 minutes.
4. Start the Cooker: Place the pot into the rice cooker. Cover it, and press the button to start.
5. Steam: When it's done, do not open and let it steam for about 15 minutes.
6. Toss: Using a rice paddle, toss the rice lightly.

7. Serve: You can keep the rice warmed until you unplug the rice cooker so serve when other dishes are ready.
