With a rice cooker? It is.

Manually with a stove? Surprisingly it's slightly above beginner level to perfect without burnt parts in the bottom.

What are you talking about? I use Squirttle to water some rice paddy fields and charizard to heat the water.

Instant rice for all.

A couple years ago, when I first tried to cook rice, I screwed it up pretty good.

We used a steamer and I put water only on the outside and nothing in the bowl where the rice was sitting. When it was "done", I opened the lid only to be blasted with a whoosh of hot steam, stone cold rice, and failure. Oh and I forgot to wash the rice beforehand too.

So in your case, the rice cooking feat would count.

Because it was legit cooking of rice manually. I mean seriously, it's surprisingly a bit convoluted to achieve that perfect all-around no burnt rice.

It's harder to get it to the right consistency. Too much water makes the rice too soggy and gross, but not enough makes it too crunchy.

It's harder to get it to the right consistency. Too much water makes the rice too soggy and gross, but not enough makes it too crunchy.

With consistency the trick no matter how much rice you use, the water will always be more than the rice in ratio. Now adjusting the amount to how much rice you plan to cook is a case-to-case, but really, the water will always be a bit more since the rice's expanding property is controlled by the water.

The burning part with manual rice cooking is still harder because you have no way to check on the bottom part of a cooking rice pot.

In my experience having a 2 to 1 ratio is pretty good, so if 1 cup of rice, 2 cups of water etc. It depends on the rice though. Also wether or not you keep the lid on your pot is another factor.

Nope. There are very few japanese dishes that actually look like they'd taste good to me in the first place. I'm very picky, so..

I occasionally make sushi, which is a lot of work. It's mostly prep work though, the assembly is the easiest part (and the most fun) imo.

I've made dango, onigiri and mochi. Just basic things, and try to go from there.
My kitchen's always a mess in the end though.

I have attempted it many times, and I've been very successful so far; the dishes have been popular. My yakisoba is by far the most popular.

Lemme ask you first, do you know how to cook regular indian curry first? You need that before proceeding to tonkatsu based curry.

I actually worked for a Japanese restaurant so I know how to make some dishes like yakisoba, katsu curry, sweet and chilly chicken, teriyaki, there's not much to say about sushi though, all I did was roll the rice and then there's a machine to cut it.

Rice in bowl is chirashizushi

I can vouch for that. I don't think I've EVER had a batch of cooked rice that doesn't have some burned bits at the bottom, sticking to the pot. And I'm like 99% of the time standing next to the pot, stirring!

Other than that, I can make some (maki)sushi. And one time, with two friends, we tried making okonomiyaki. Needless to say, we failed that one miserably.

This is why even though I can cook stuff pretty good and I can do the no-burnt thing with manually cooked rice, I've joined the darkside and always use a rice cooker nowadays xD

Cooked a few thanks to Cooking with Dog, though I have made Japanese stuyle pizza's for awhile now. Also rice isn't that hard on a stove.

One of your mistakes is stiring it also your water amount might be to low, its a learning process. Other than that I'm a good cook in general.
