Osekihan, or Azuki red rice is something we eat for special occasions, typically to celebrate something.
You use sticky rice for this, and cook it with Azuki beans.
The beautiful red color comes from Azuki.
This was my first attempt to make Osekihan, and it turned out perfect!
I hadn’t eaten Osekihan for such a long time, and it was such as nice treat.
There was no special celebration, but being able to eat this dish after so many years itself was kind of a celebration (lol).
