Wehani® is an aromatic rice sold whole-grain, with the bran on it left on.

Before cooking, it is terra-cotta coloured.

When cooked, the rice turns a mahogany colour and is slightly chewy. Some think the cooked rice has an aroma similar to hot peanuts or popcorn.

The rice splits slightly when cooked.

Cooking Tips

For 4 to 6 servings: Simmer 1 cup (11 oz / 300 g) of Wehani® in 2 cups (16 oz / 500 ml) of water and 1 tablespoon of butter for 45 minutes with the pot's lid on. Don't remove the lid. Then remove from heat, let stand for 10 minutes.

Or, use same quantity of ingredients in a rice cooker.

    Escargot had their heyday in the 1970s, when everyone ate them with garlic butter and bought the Escargot dishes for home use (but couldn't actually bring themselves to buy the slimy little critters for use in their own kitchen.) You may wish to finally try cooking up Escargot in garlic sauce in your own kitchen. Mind you, you could simmer golf balls in that sauce and they would taste good.
