Steamed Rice With Soft Gingko Nuts

Steamed Rice With Soft Gingko Nuts

I definitely want to make this rice whenever I can get a hold of some gingko nuts.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Ginkgo Nuts
about 15
Kombu for dashi stock
3cm×3cm piece
Sake
1 tablespoon
Mentsuyu (3x concentrate)
1 tablespoon
Salt
a pinch
Uncooked white rice
1 rice cooker cup (180ml)

Steps

1. Rinse the rice and drain in a sieve. Meanwhile, dry-roast the ginkgo nuts for 7 to 8 minutes in a frying pan.
2. Shell the gingko nuts. It's easy to peel off even the thin skin on the nuts while they are hot.
3. Put the rice into rice cooker. Add the kombu for dashi stock, sake, mentsuyu, salt and the ginkgo nuts. Cook the rice on the regular setting.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this because I received lots of ginkgo nuts as a gift.
