Got a new Zojirushi, recipe suggestions?
My dad bought me a Zoj Neuro Fuzzy 10 cup for my B-Day.. I love the look, kinda like something from Star Wars.
Anyway, anyone out there have something they love about their Zoj, aside from rice of course.
I have always had trouble with brown rice and this one has that setting. Does it perform well for that?
Thanks in advance
I just cooked some brown rice (short grain) in mine yesterday. I don't like the brown rice setting OR the suggested water amount. Makes the rice soggy, IMO. I cook mine on the white rice setting, with the white rice water guides. This might be dependent on the type of brown rice you're working with...
How did you make the rice pudding?
I used the Old Fashioned recipe from The Ultimate Rice Cooker.
2/3 C medium grain rice
4 C milk
1 large egg
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
put rice and milk in cooker. set to porridge. When it stops, add remaining ingredients [tempering first]; reset to porridge and stir every 15 minutes or so [it will thicken as it sets]..
after that, I added some demerera sugar to the top just for crunch..love that taste
Hubby ate three helpings.
It was also good cold the next day
My Dad got a big Fujitronic automatic job...doesn't cook brown rice very well at all. The old cheapo National however cooks brown rice very well. My guess is the newer cookers have a moisture or some other sensor that shuts it off too soon...the fuzzy logic however might help. Also might look for split grain brown rice, usually at Japanese stores.
