Rice Buns

Rice Buns with Sesame Seeds and Oil
Cuisine Japanese


  • 1:1:1 ratio of Glutinous Rice: Brown Rice: Short Grain Rice
  • Water as needed
  • Black Sesame Seeds to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame oil per portion, then adusting to taste


  • Cook rice as per rice cooker instructions. (It is hard to give a ratio for rice cooking. Watch America’s Test Kitchen’s video on rice ratio for more info.)
  • When the rice is cool enough to handle, mix everything together with black sesame seeds and sesame oil.
  • Wet your hands and shape these into a thin patty. As glutinous rice is already used, the mixture is already starchy and sticky enough without a rice burger shaper that popular rice burger recipes like to use.
