How to Make Japanese Sticky Rice on Stove

Asian food is one of my favorites, I love how it tastes and the mix of flavors. I usually make some Asian inspired dish at least once every week.

I usually make a big batch of sticky rice on Sunday and keep it in the fridge for the upcoming week.

Sticky rice is so versatile because you can make so many different dishes with it. You can top it with whatever your heart desires and make a completely different dish each time. From sweet to spicy or even just as is, it’s so good.

This sticky rice on the stove is perfect for

Stir-fries

Sushi

Salads

Sushi sandwiches

Poke Bowls

Or just as is, with some nori seaweed, sesame seeds, and soy sauce!

Before trying this method, I struggled to cook rice on a stove top for a long time. I overcooked and even burnt a lot of rice. This method is so easy, once you try it you won’t go back!

First, you will need a medium to short grain rice to get that perfect sticky texture that characterizes Japanese rice.

If you are interested, I use this rice to make Japanese style sticky rice. I discovered Iherb and I love shopping there because they have a wide variety of products, and they ship worldwide!!!

Note: The recipe below is for 2 servings but you can double or triple the ingredients. The soaking and cooking time remains the same.
