Cooking Basics

Cucumbers - rounds

Cut the cucumber at consistent widths from end to end. This is also called an edge cut when used for cucumbers or Japanese long onions.

Eggs - beating

When making a Japanese fried egg omelet, steamed egg custard or such where you desire soft and smooth eggs keep your chopsticks low in the bowl and beat using small movements as if slicing through the egg white. For scrambled eggs and egg-drop dishes, if you beat using big movements and in a way that does not fully mix the yolks with the whites, you will achieve fluffy eggs when cooked.

White rice - how to cook


Rinse off any rice bran from the surface of the rice and any rice starch that attached during polishing. As it causes oxidation and sliminess, and is readily absorbed by the rice, quickly pour out the first batch of water used to rinse the rice that is cloudy from the rice bran content. This process is made easier by using an all-purpose strainer and a bowl.


Rinse the rice by stirring with your hand and then discard of this water. Repeat this step 2 to 3 times until the water becomes less cloudy. Be careful not to rinse too vigorously, as doing so will damage the rice grains.


Leave the rice in the colander for about 30 minutes to absorb water.


Place the rice into the inner pot of a rice cooker, add the indicated amount of water, and then steam.
