Dp used to work in a Japanese restaurant. We use nishiki? Rice or something rose, I forget the names. At least one of them is usually found in our regular grocery store or Costco. We use & love our rice cooker. Not because it's necessary but because it makes it so easy. I think this is how we make it. 2 cups rice, cover with water, swirl around & dump the water several times to clean then dump water & add a bit over 2 cups so maybe 2&a quarter cups water, let it sit for maybe 20 minutes then turn on the cooker. That's it, super easy. We also freeze any leftover rice in sandwich size baggies. Reheats easily in the microwave.
