Delicious Japanese comfort food.

Warm yourself up or settle your ailing stomach with Taimatsu's white rice porridge. Known in Japanese as Kayu, this porridge is made using fluffy, chewy Koshihikari rice grown in Niigata prefecture (one of the best areas of Japan for rice cultivation). Enjoy this porridge as it is, try with a little honey or syrup, or combine with a topping of pickles or bonito flakes.

ITEM ID: #4232


Kayu is rice that has been boiled with a large volume of water to create a thick porridge. Eaten all over East Asia when one is feeling unwell (making it something like the Asian equivalent of chicken soup), kayu is also a great alternative to the oat-based porridges commonly enjoyed here in the UK for breakfast. Why not browse Japan Centre's Instant Rice section and discover our whole range of easy-to-prepare rice dishes?
