Japanese Sticky Rice With Veggies in Homemade Teriyaki Sauce:

1. Ingredients:

I am making some extra Teriyaki Sauce so that i could use it again in a few days. Always make some extra, that way you can add this sauce while making noodles, chicken etc too.

For Teriyaki Sauce you need:

GF Soy Sauce: 1/4 cup

Water: 1 cup

Honey: 1 tbsp

Brown Sugar: 4-5 tbsp

Ginger: 1/2 tbsp finely grated

Garlic Powder: 1/4 tsp

Sesame oil: 1 tbsp (Or any veg oil)

Cornstarch: 2 tbsp

Water: 1/4 cup


Cook the sauce:

Step 1: Mix everything (except the cornstarch and cold water) in a sauce pan and begin heating. Add a cup of water right now.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, mix the cornstarch in 1/4 cup water.

Step 3: Add this mixture to the saucepan.

Step 4: Reduce heat and simmer for about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Store in the fridge for up to a week.


Ingredients for sticky rice:

Japanese sticky rice: 1 cup ( wash a couple of times with normal water and soak it in a cup of water for 10 minutes)


Cook the rice:

Make it like your normal white rice. In 1 cup of rice, add water just slightly above the level of rice, turn the stove on. Let this cook on high heat for 3-4 minutes, after that cook till done on low heat. Keep checking the rice occasionally. If you feel the rice needs more water add a little hot water till the rice is nicely done.


Ingredients for the stir fry veggies:

You can stir fry any veggies of your choice. I picked these.


Oyster mushrooms: 1 packet

Button mushrooms: 1 packet

Green onions: 2-3 ( coarsely chopped)

Onion: 1 small. Sliced

Garlic cloves: 2-3 finely chopped

Red cabbage: 1 cup. Chopped

Green chillies: 1 chopped

Tofu: 1 packet

Bean sprouts: 1/3 cup

Oil: Sesame/ olive: 1 tbsp

Salt to taste

Vinegar/lemon juice: 1/2 tbsp



Step 1: Pan fry the tofu cubes. keep aside.

Step2: In the same pan add the garlic and the veggies on high heat. Keep stirring. Add salt to taste.

Step 3: After 3-4 minutes, add the Teriyaki sauce. This you can adjust according to taste. I usually add 2 heaped tablespoons. Mix well. Cook for another minute.

Step 4: The veggies need to be slightly crunchy, so do not over cook them. Add the vinegar. Mix well.

Serve the veggies on a bed of sticky rice and tofu. Sprinkle some bean sprouts on top. YUM! Enjoy!
