  1. Hello everybody! would love to see an easy to make yak sik recipe!

  2. Here's an easy one I found:

  3. The recipe from koreanathome requires a pressure rice cooker, which is a rather expensive equipment that not many household has or can afford.
    I find another recipe, using the good old regular rice cooker

    This recipe has some error that I have modified
    1. If the sweet rice has been soaked overnight, you should not use 2 cups of water for 2 cups of rice. Rice will become very mushy. For 2 cups of overnight-soaked-rice, only use 1 and 3/4 cup of water. I use the plastic cup that comes with the rice cooker - it is not a full cup 8 oz. I don't think that matters, it is the proportion that counts.
    2. I add 1/4 tsp of cinnamon ans 1/2 tsp of sesame oil.
    3. When rice is almost done, open the rice cooker and stir rice and everything to be sure all rice grains are fully cooked and to avoid clumping and burning at the bottom, then close the rice cooker to let the cooking continues. As soon as the alarm goes off that the rice is cooked, unplug the cooker, stir the rice and leave the cover open to let the steam and heat dissipate for 5 minutes.
