short grain white rice
white sesame seeds
fresh young ginger
Give a quick rinse to rice under running water and strain it through a colander.
In a medium sized dutch oven or pot, add in rice, water, sake and salt. Stir the liquid.
Add in the ginger.
Place the dutch oven over high heat. No lid is needed. Stir occasionally to avoid the rice to stick at the bottom.
Once the water boils, then put the lid on and turn the heat down to simmer.
Cook for 12 minutes and turn off the heat. Do not open the lead yet. The rice is still cooking. Wait another 15 minutes.
Open the lid, add the shiso leaves and fluff the rice.
