If you are having digestive problems or are on a low-fiber or bland diet use white rice.
Okayu makes a delicious savory change from oatmeal for breakfast. Here’s a way to make it the night before with uncooked rice:
1. Wash ½ cup of rice and put it into a pan with 3-4 times its volume of water. Bring it to a boil, cover tightly, then turn off the heat and leave overnight.
2. By the morning, the rice will have soaked up nearly all of the water. Add more water to taste, depending on how soupy you like your oyaku. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes stirring from time to time. If it gets too thick, add a little boiling water. Serve with recommended toppings.
