Premium rice for everyday meals.

Authentic Japanese cooking needs authentic Japanese rice, and this 2.5kg bag of Nishiki rice is the perfect grain for the job. Grown in California (with the help of the US state's rich soil and crystal clear water), Nishiki is a premium, medium grain variety of Japonica rice. When freshly steamed it becomes fluffy and slightly sticky, making it perfect for making sushi or onigiri rice balls, or for serving alongside other homecooked Japanese meals like donburi rice balls or tempura.

ITEM ID: #1373

Background

As the interest in Japanese cuisine has grown worldwide, so too has the demand for Japanese, or Japonica, rices. These rices are small to medium in grain size and become particularly sticky when cooked, making them ideal for eating out of side bowls with chopsticks, or for pressing into moulded sushi and onigiri rice ball shapes. Take a look at Japan Centre's Rice section for a fantastic variety of Japonica rice, grown in Japan and around the world.
