I started this recipe in a rice cooker but the rice cooked before the pumpkin cooked through. I finished in a rice steamer.
- 1.5 c koshikahari medium grain rice
- 1.5 c water
- 16 oz kabocha, peel and cubed
- 1 tsp sake
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp sugar
Rinse rice well til water runs clear. Add equal parts water to rice in a pot. Add sake, salt and sugar. Top with kaboucha. Bring to boil. When most of the water has evaporated transfer to a rice steamer. Steam til rice is soft and pumpkin is cooked through.
