Ingredients

  • 1
    cup short grain white rice
  • furikake (optional)

Instructions

1
Make your rice: I rinsed one cup of short grain rice and used a microwaveable rice cooker.
2
It takes about 12 to 14 minutes to cook the rice; I did mine in 6 minute intervals stirring in between. The cook time depends on the strength of the microwave.
3
Heat up a small sauté pan over medium high heat. Flatten about 1/2 cup of rice until rice reaches the edges of the pan.
4
Dip the spoon in water to spread the rice more easily and evenly. It should look like a rice pancake. Cook for about 5 minutes per side.
5
The rice should be drying out and be able to slide around the pan after a couple minutes. When you see the edges of the rice browning, flip the rice.
6
Once flipped, press down a couple more times to flatten the rice more. Repeat until both sides are somewhat brown and crispy, and transfer to plate

I like to eat my Nurungji (Scorched Rice) plain or sometimes I like to sprinkle furikake on top for some added flavor. Nice and crunchy! Enjoy!
