Traditionally grown for authenticity.

Great Japanese cooking requires great Japanese rice, and this 5kg bag of Yumenishiki is more than ready for the challenge. Cultivated in Italy, this rice is a new variety of Koshihikari (a type of Japonica rice), produced under the watchful eye of Japanese rice-growing professionals with traditional growing methods. A fluffy, slightly sticky rice perfect for using every day as a side dish to a Japanese meal, or for moulding into sushi and onigiri rice balls.

ITEM ID: #2263

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.

Use it for curry, donburi my family loves and sometimes with just natto and pickles when on my own. Although grown in EU it has the Japanese rice texture. Bought large bag as it was on special offer and have used it before.

My daughter and I prefer the more expensive rice because it taste so much better, we have tried different ones but always go back to this one and other rice like it
