What is short grain brown rice?
  Let’s talk about short grain brown rice: Short-grain rice, as opposed to medium- and long-grain, is small and stout. It’s known for its starchy texture, which makes it great for dishes where you want the grains to stick together, like sushi, or where you’re going for a creamy texture, like rice pudding.
Which is healthier long grain or short rice?
What is the ratio of this rice to water?
   Before You Start: Please note that Japanese  type of this  rice requires a soaking time of 6 hours to overnight. If you’re cooking short-grain white rice, see my post on how to make white rice. The rice-to-water ratio is 1 to 1.6 (or 1.7) for Japanese  .


How long to soak short this type of  rice?
Using 2 cups water for every 1 cup of rice, place rice and water in a large bowl. Let soak 90 minutes. If you’re short on time, Marek notes that even soaking the rice for just 15 minutes “helps [the cooking] process go quicker and it also begins to remove the excess starches from the grain,” he says.
