How to cook brown rice the ninja way yutori-ho
There were two ways of cooking brown rice, but both were quite different from modern methods.
The first method was as follows:
- Put brown rice in pot.
- Add slightly more water than you would normally use to cook rice, boil thoroughly, then place in a “zaru” (small bamboo basket) to strain off the stock.
- Cover with a zaru and allow the rice to steam itself. This method of cooking brow rice was called “yutori-ho”
