Sticky situation/Situation... collante

Posted on 3/29/2008 by Myriam Moret

You make sushi with it and mix it with some rice vinegar and all and it does take some of the stickiness out but japanese rice is sticky. I'm used to it by now and since you can only find the Japonica variety of rice here, one has to eat it and shut up. They do sell indianica varieties in some fancy import shops but my liking for Jasmine rice doesn't quite go as far as spending almost CAD$25/kg on it.

Tonight (as often) I was feeling lazy for dinner and I was gonna eat by myself so I decided to just grab a bowl of plain cooked rice at 7/11 and eat it with some leftover curry. Well japanese rice is sticky, 7/11's rice is STICKY! For a moment I thought I'd need surgical removal to take off the few grains sticking to my fingers and I managed to lift the entire "block" of rice out of the bowl by sticking the back of a spoon on top of it.  But when you're hungry, you're hungry so I ate the thing with the curry that was making it somewhat palatable and it fell like a brick in my stomach. Now I'm not feeling so good... the lesson to be learned: Don't trust 7/11 with your dinner. :S


Vous faites du sushi avec, le mélangez avec un peu de vinaigre de riz et ça enlève un peu du collant mais reste que le riz japonnais, c'est collant. Je m'y suis habituée et comme il n'y a que du riz de la variété japonnica ici, on le mange et on se la ferme. Ils vendent de la variété indianica dans les épiceries d'importation haut de gamme mais mon amour du riz jasmin ne justifie pas encore de payer CAD25$/kg.

Ce soir (comme souvent) je me sentais paresseuse et comme j'allais manger toute seule, j'ai décidé d'acheter un bol de riz blanc cuit au 7/11 (dépaneur 24h) et de manger ça avec les restes de curry d'hier. Bon, le riz japonnais est collant, le riz du 7/11 lui, est COLLANT! Je me suis demandée pendant un instant si j'allais avoir besoin d'une chirurgie pour enlever les quelques grains qui me collais aux doigts et j'ai réussi à sortir le "bloc" de riz du bol en collant le dos d'une cuillère sur le dessus. Mais quand on a faim, on a faim. J'ai donc mangé la chose avec le curry qui le rendais "un peu" mangeable et ça m'a tombé comme une brique dans l'estomac. Maintenant je ne me sens pas très bien... la morale de cette histoire: Ne faite pas confiance au 7/11 pour votre souper. :S
