Short grain rice

Mepssal 멥쌀

Uncooked short grain rice is called mepssal in Korean. It’s also known as “sushi rice” and is stickier than long grain rice, and can be found in many Asian grocery stores, as it’s very popular in Japan as well. Here’s the recipe for cooked rice.

    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!!
