Mepssal, or uncooked short grain rice, is the kind of rice Koreans use for all their meals. It’s also called “sushi rice” in Western grocery stores. It’s stickier than long grain rice, and can be found in all Asian grocery stores. Store in a cool, dry place. Here’s how to cook it properly.

    If I use sticky rice instead of short grain rice in making wet rice flour for tteok, will it be okay?

    Can you please post a video and recipe for Korean rice with beans? Or perhaps a five-grain rice? A recipe that uses a rice cooker, preferably.

    Thank you!!
