Osekihan, meaning, red rice. In Japan, osekihan is served for celebration .

You can also get it from most of convenience stores in Japan. They are about 100 yen.
Osekihan is actually filling ♪ I love it.
Only 2 ingredients.
Glutinous rice (Sweet rice?) 360cc
I got it from Asian grocery store in the city. (Russel Street, Melbourne)
Red beans. 40g
You can get organic red beans from Terra Madre. (Northcote, Melbourne)
First, cook the red beans.
Bring it to boil then make it low heat then keep cooking about 15 min.
Cool it down.
Keep the boiled water.
It needs when you cook rice to make rice nicely natural red.
Wash the rice and soak in the water for 10 min.
Before cooking the glutinous rice, put it in a strainer to let the water drain off.
Add red beans boiled water
Then start cooking wit medium heat, bring it to boil.
When it boils, make the heat low and add boiled red beans into pot.
Put the lid, then cook it for 10 min.
After 10 min, take pots off a fire, leave it for another 10 min. Steaming time.

Mix it softly.

It’s good for party dish.
Or you can make Onigiri.

Osekihan become hard if you put it into fridge.
It’s better to leave it at room temperature.
