Shiokoji Satsuma Imo Rice

【Ingredients】 (4 servings)

Water……About 2 cups
Satsuma imo (Japanese sweet potato) ……150g (5.3oz)
Black sesame……Pinch

【How to Make】
① Wash the rice and soak in water for at least 15 minutes.
② Dice the Satsuma imo into 1cm (little less than a half inch) cubes (Do not skin). Soak in water to remove bitterness.
③ Add the rice, water, and shiokoji to a rice cooker, and give a quick stir. Drain the potatoes and add them to the top of the rice. Set the cooker on “white rice” (hakumai or 白米) mode and cook.
④ When the rice is done cooking, use a shamoji (paddle-like utensil) to mix it with a cutting motion. Serve in rice bowls.
⑤ Sprinkle on black sesame.
