ワンポイント・アドバイス / One-point advice


☆  ☆  ☆

・ Once you put a pan on the heat, don’t get the lid off until it’s done.
・ The rough standard of water amount is 1.1-1.2 times of the rice amount. You can adjust it and find the favorite texture.
・ If there is any left, wrap them in plastic wrap or put them in a plastic container, and you can keep them in a freezer. Then, when you want to eat them, just heat them up in the microwave.
