Sumo Rice, A Perfect Calrose Rice For Cooking Japanese, Korean and Chinese Cuisine

 Dear Readers, 

 Calrose Rice Suitable To Cook Japanese, Korean and Chinese Cuisines

Until the moment I wrote about this entry, I didn't know that choosing type of rice is also an art in cooking. Why I say so? Well, preparing dishes like sushi actually required different type of rice grain. Your fragrant rice at home won't make a nice sushi, okay? 
From my reading, there are actually more than 10 type of rices that available in the market such as white rice, brown rice, red rice, black rice, jasmine, Basmati, Japanese, glutinous, wild, Arborio rice and many more. 

But today, what I am going to share with you is about Calrose rice from a brand known as Sumo Rice.

Sumo Calrose Rice
Calrose rice is a medium grain rice and known as one of the most recognized California rice in the United States and abroad especially at the Pacific. This is the name that registered in trade and the marketplace where Cal represent California, the state of the grain's origin and production while "rose" indicate its medium-grain shape. 

Just a fun fact that almost 80% of the California rice crop is this Calrose rice. Besides California, Calrose rice is grown in other countries as well around the globe where the growing conditions are suitable such Pacific Rim and Australia. 
It is soft and sticky making it suitable to prepare Japanese cuisine such as the sushi and others like Korean and Chinese cuisine. This rice can absorb flavors very well hence, making it a better choice for this purpose. In addition, this rice is also used to prepare dishes like paella, poke bowl, rice ball and many more.
