The day I came back from Hawaii, I was unpacking and getting ready to get some sleep when Satoshi says, "Kat, I tried to make rice..."
"There was a little more than 2 cups so I dumped it all in, but when it finished cooking it was super dry"
"So, I added more water and cooked it again"
"It was super junky"
So, I went over to check out the rice cooker...yup, clumpy, goopy, rice...
I told Satoshi, "I'll try to make ohagi from it"
He said, "you can do that?"
Well, the picture above is what I tried making...mini ohagi. I rolled a little scoop of rice into a ball then molded some sweet bean paste around it.
I also dusted some with green tea, some with kinako (powdered soy bean) and some were just as is.
He was impressed, I still have more "junk rice" but at least I know it can be salvaged.
