  5. 5.Add the sesame powder and sugar to the rice, cook for a further 10 mins and then remove from the heat.

Tips: * If you don’t have time to pre-soak the rice overnight, add an extra 15 minutes to the cooking time plus 100ml water. ** Black sesame seeds are a little bitter compared to white sesame seeds, which have a slightly sweet and nutty flavour. You can use 50/50 black and white sesame seeds if you are not a big fan of the black sesame seed’s stronger flavour. *** Sesame seed’s flavour and aroma improve after roasting.
