    I do n’t think steaming pot is necessary, because rice can be cooked without steamer as well, like porridge can also be cooked into rice, but we need to mix it to avoid sticking to the side of the pot.
     
    So I think Cauldron only needs to be able to cook food, which means that it can hold all the liquid, and cook or brew with different water and temperature control and the ingredients thrown in to make different foods or potions.

    You should be able to make different kinds of sushi based on what fish is used and how they would be placed in the crafting table like a sushi that is fish + rice + kelp would be different than rice + fish + kelp

    Great idea! I like how you decided to put something in Minecraft that follows the traits of not only the biology of it but also how its economy is. The food you came up with is also great.

    They should also add this food: rice + dried kelp = kimbap.

    I eat rice almost every day, so it would be awesome to have this in Minecraft, considering how widely it is eaten. It would add a new crop to the game, and it should grow like this: there's water above dirt, and the base of the rice plant is planted in the water, because rice is a semi-aquatic plant. Then the plant grows 2 blocks above the water, which you then harvest. So, it should grow to the same height as sugar cane.

    I agree with Daniel Andrade, farmland blocks should be waterlogged. You would plant the rice seed on the waterlogged farmland because rice is a semi-aquatic plant. If you go to a rice field in real life, the soil will be completely covered by water.

    I feel that there would be Rice Seeds, or the Rice would be planted in the dirt in the water to make it growing, and bone meal should affect it's growth. The maximum height would be 12-18 blocks

    I only want rice bowl out of those foods, but it would be wonderful to have more diverse villages for biomes (like bamboo forest, or just plains)

    Great idea! Having crops in water is certainly unique (all kelp aside). A different method of this could be to plant the rice as usually on land (thus still requiring a hoe) and then put water on it to water-log the tilled dirt. I think it makes sense to still need a hoe to grow rice as they use tools in real life, and you would still get the same aesthetic of not seeing the rice at first and having it rise from the water. The only sacrifice to this method is that walking through the rice paddies would not feel the same as real life as the water would not be very deep, unless on the off chance the developers lower the height of tilled dirt when it becomes water-logged. Rice seeds could also be used to breed a new bird like a crane!

    Maybe if you cook the rice in a furnace, then you would obtain popped rice, which could be used to make rice cakes. The mochi isn't,a rice cake, it is a dough ball dessert made from rice dough

    Both types of sushi should be in Minecraft and that means other sushi ingredients like eel and crab too (I eat sushi with eel it is very good). Ride farms in jungle villages and the farmers plant and harvest them maybe it could be a new job ride farmer and it's job block is a composter in a jungle biome.

    In terms of generation, I think it should spawn in around 30% of plains villages instead of wheat, potatoes, beetroot and carrot. It would act as its own seed and you should receive between 3 and 8 rice from each plant. Rice on its own shouldn't be edible
    I agree that it should be two blocks tall, but I think that it should still grow the same as other plants: it has to be in a 5 block vacinity of a water block to grow. However I think it is fair that it can grow quicker if placed in water. It would have 4 stages of growth. The first three stages would take it to just above 1 block tall, and the fourth would take it just above 2 blocks tall
    However I think theres should be an added incentive in the game to get rice. This could be the ability to automatically farm it. Much like sugar cane farms, observers could detect when it reaches its full hieght and a piston could break it, making it an easy and reliable food source. A bowl of rice (crafted with one bowl and 8 rice) would fill 4 hunger points, but could be added too with other food sources. Sushi (one bowl of rice with three dried kelp and a raw salmon) would fill 9 hunger points and have high sat. I wouldn't add the Fried Rice, because chicken, which on its own is a pretty substantial food source, should definitely not be incorporated into another food. I do, however, think that the rice cake could work. It would be crafted with 8 rice surrounding one sugar, give 5 hunger points and be stackable to 64 but have low sat

    The higher the temperature of the biome is - the higher chance of dropping rice seeds.

    Badlands / Desert: - 1 in 20

    Snowy Taiga: 1 in 150

    Along with rice you could also have pasta which could be made from wheat.

    How much hunger would each food heal? I love this idea, but I'd like to know.

    I am down for anything that makes dried kelp feel like an actual staple food that could be preferable aside form fast growth ticks.

    Also some more food ideas to go with rice!!

    • Rice + Dired Kelp + Any Meat/Vegetable = Onigiri (rice balls)
    • Bowl + Rice + Porkchop = Katsudon (pork cutlet cowl)
    • Bowl + Rice + Water Bucket = Congee (rice porridge)
    • Bowl + Rice + Egg = Tamago Kake Gohan (egg on rice)
    • Bowl + Rice + 1 type of Mushroom + 1 type of Vegetable + 1 type of Meat or Fish  = Takikomi Gohan (Mixed Rice)
    • Rice + Egg + Chicken = Omurice (Rice Omelet)
    • Bowl + Rice + 4 of any Meat, Fish, Dried Kelp, Mushrooms, or Vegetables = Donburi (Mixed Rice Bowl Dish) 

    --Sorry for the poor translation on Donburi. Donburi is pretty much a broad category of dishes made in a bowl, served with rice and an arrangement of either meat, seafood, vegetables, & other toppings.

    Donburi is pretty much how 'pasta' is to lasagna and spaghetti for rice bowl dishes - in premise they fall under the same category but are still their own respective things. If I tried to list every Donburi variation it would take up too much of this comment.

    Your rice variations also make the Balanced diet more hard, which is really good. It should yield more XP then. Also, an advancement Asia Food Lover or something like that should be added for eating all variations of rice.

    Have this update released with Crabs. Many people choose California rolls when they first try sushi. 😁 Plus I like spicy tuna rolls. Tuna; huge fish, too big to catch, packs 2-4, will defend each other.

    edit: also with the crab post closed, how come nobody mentioned Rock Lobster? 🦞

    KoalaKat36912 Considering beef, how much do you think it should heal?

    Wherever rice may spawn, in some biomes you may also find (green) sprouts nearby; similar to grass & used in recipes.

    1 con of rice is it’s variety. You can think of hundreds of ways to use it, but even with few reserved they will be mostly aesthetically different. Any variation (brown/white/long/short) should not be pushed at this time; simply Rice. Modifying that you get 2 variations: Sticky & Milled.

    Sushi is a hot topic, but there is a lot that goes into making a final product. In reality, 1st rice must be rinsed in cold water till water runs clear. Seasonings prepped ahead time (Sugar+Salt+Vinegar [Sugar+Salt+Sake]) Can be heated to mix, but must be room temp
    Cook in a steamer/pot. Take out, mix in seasoning in a cut-fold motion to avoid crushing into a paste. Can continue motion till cool or put on a pan (aluminum not advised.) Now you have Sticky Rice.

    Sushi Roller (1 bamboo+1string). Placed on crafting table with items, stays on left side when recipe processes. The reason for this is to allow easier variety for this and others; bowls, Hand Rolls.

    Vinegar. Used with other foods as well as for science & magic stuff! Using Sugar and Salt for both Vinegar & Seasonings creates a huge demand for Sugar (and Salt.) Sake requires fermentation just like Vinegar, from Milled Rice. You call it a fermenter, I call it a composter (CP); CP rules but yields differ from bonemeal; or a way to wait for yields from CP like pumpkins. Grindstone mills Rice.

    Seasonings can exist in two forms; (wet) Bottle of or (dry) Pinch of Seasonings. Conversions: Pinch to bottle of water - Bottle cooked. Huge options here.

    So to translate how to make sticky rice in the game: Place rice in flowing water block. Water gets murky for 5-8 seconds; dropping one at a time resets timer. When clear, pick up. Rice has status effect; rinsed (last 5-10 minutes from pickup, stacks based off shortest timer if mixed.) Place in cooker while rinsed for steamed status effect (same rules, replaces rinsed) Combine steamed rice with seasoning at craft table.

     

    To make Sushi, because of the variety, it should not be placement specific. Place the Sushi Roller, Dried Kelp, Sticky Rice & others (sprouts, meats, etc) on the crafting table. Sushi is made, Roller remains.

    Here are what the recipes should be:

    Rice + Bowl = Bowl of Rice

    Rice + Dried Kelp + Carrot + Cooked Beef = Kimbap

    Rice = Flour (Because rice can be ground into rice flour)

    Flour + Water = Rice Cake

    Rice + Fish = Sushi

    It should be that you have to waterlog either the farmland - because ricefields are flooded in real life - or waterlog the lower part of the crop itself.

    Yes add rice and add a new biome that’s like the plains biome but flooded so we can grow rice

    We should also have rice farms in villages. With this, farmers should be able to harvest rice and you should be able to breed villagers with 2 meals containing rice.

    As I mentioned in some comment above, the colder the biome is, the lower is the probability of getting rice. This should also depend on how these farms generate in villages (1/6 chance in desert ones, 1/9 chance in savanna ones, 1/12 in plains villages, 1/20 in taiga villages and 1/45 in snowy villages)
