1Drain rice, or chosen grain. Add to blender and blend thoroughly with 3 cups water. Remove from blender and set aside.


3Drain sesame seeds. Toast in frying pan on low-medium heat, 1-2 minutes, until fragrant.


5Add seeds to blender with ~3/4 cups water, and blend thoroughly.


7Add rice mixture back into blender (along with optional walnuts) and mix thoroughly.


9Transfer mixture to a pot, combined with sugar and the rest of the water.


11Bring to a boil, then simmer on low until thickened (5-8 minutes). Stir frequently to prevent sediment from sticking to bottom of pot and burning.


13Add more boiling water to adjust thickness, if desired.



1 cup grain of choice, soaked overnight. It is traditionally made with white rice. You can pick from healthier grains like millet, barley, buckwheat, brown rice, amaranth.

1 cup black sesame seeds, soaked overnight

7 cups water

1 cup unrefined sugar, depending on the sweetness taste

optional walnuts
