Japanese Corn Rice Recipe: An Easy Rice Recipe Loaded With Corn Flavor

Japanese corn rice is simply sushi rice that's been seasoned with corn, soy sauce and kombu then served with butter or sesame oil. The corn flavor is intensified by using the corn milk and the cob when cooking the rice. Serve this easy rice recipe with chickenpork or crispy egg rolls for a light dinner.

Cuisine: Japanese
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total time: 1 hour

Servings: 4 to 6


Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cut the kernels off the cob into a bowl. Using a knife, scrape the cob to release the corn milk into the bowl. Do not throw away the cob. 
  2. Drain the rice and put it into a large pot. Add the water, soy sauce and salt, to taste. Stir to combine. 
  3. Put the corn, corn cob, corn milk and dried kombu on top of the rice. Press gently to submerge it in the water. Cover the pot, bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook about 6 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking for about 15 more minutes. Remove from the heat and let the rice sit, covered, for about 10 minutes.  
  4. After 10 minutes, open the pot and remove the cob and kombu (you can throw it away). Fluff the rice. Serve with butter or sesame oil.
