How to Make Lucky Bean Rice (Fukumame Gohan) - Video Recipe

I cooked flavored rice using Fukumame (lucky beans) which were leftover from the bean scattering of Setsubun.

You can use frozen Edamame beans, green peas, or any kind of cooked beans instead of Fukumame!

What is Setsubun?

2 cups uncooked Japanese rice (you can mix white and brown rice)

* 25g (0.9oz.) Shio-Kombu (salted kelp)
* 40g (1.4oz.) short and thinly sliced carrot

1. Wash rice if needed. If you are using pre-washed rice (musenmai) you don't have to wash it.
2. Place the rice in a pot and add water to the appropriate level indicated in the pot.
3. Add A and mix well. Place the pot into the rice cooker. Cover it, and press the button to start.
4. When it's done, do not open and let it steam for about 15 minutes. Using a rice paddle, toss the rice lightly.
5. Serve in a rice bowl.
