    Ok I went to my local asian store where I know they've had big packets for one of those LOL
    The packet looks different (& is smaller) and I don't know which one it is or if it is either icon_confused.gif
    It's all in asian except for the nutrition label.
    It says :sushi seasoning w/prepared vegetable (sushi taro).

    Ingredients: sugar, vinegar, lotus root, carrot, dried gourd, salt, soy sauce, bamboo shoot, mushroom, corn syrup, mirin, kelp, bonito powder....contains wheat, soybean, fish

    Is it Gomokuzushi or Chirashizushi or something zushi else?

    I don't know why I didn't look up Sushi taro site says it is for chirashizushi.
    I don't remember a huge difference between the two dishes though.

    That is what is typically served by home cooks in Japan as chirashi zushi (scattered sushi rice) and also known as gomoku zushi or bara zushi. These terms are really interchangeable. Bara also means scattered or all over the place and gomoku means mixture. I like these ready made packages very much and most Japanese now use them instead of making from scratch. You can also add many more things to the mixture and also to the toppings too. Don't have to limit yourself to the traditional mixture or toppings and things like bbq sliced chicken, grilled veggies etc will make wonderful addition.

    This one by Nagatanien and named Sushi Taro looks like this:

    Thanks for clearing that up for me.
    I just remembered one Japanese friend bringing me some and calling it chirashi zushi and another time a different friend brought me gomoku zushi.
    I knew they tasted similar icon_lol.gif
    Thanks for the tip on adding other ingredients to it.

    My package is pink and doesn't show the nori strips etc.... just opened it and Nope, no nori. I have some sheets so I guess I could snip my own up.

    I can't make out much because I can't read it....but It's says 150g (I think of rice). That's 1cup right? BUT those packets are sooo tiny. Oh and is that 150g of cooked rice or is that measured from dry form?
    Thanks, it's been awhile since I've made it.

    Wow, very very hard posting to the forum anymore. icon_sad.gif icon_sad.gif

    Hmmm, you have different one from what I have. Mine comes with 2 ready made veggie and sauce mixture in aluminum foil along with 2 packets of nori. The instruction on mine says cook 2 C of rice and mix one packet of sauce mixture after the rice is cooked and fluffed. Nori goes on top.

    Do you still have the packet? If you could possibly take a closeup photo of the back I might be able to read it. Let me also check online to see if there are other types from this company.

    I'm copying this from the company site:

    DIRECTIONS2~3 serv.(1Seasoning packet)


    * 21oz. (600g)cooked rice
    *approx. 5 rice bowls=2cups of raw rice[11oz.(300g)] (more or less according to taste)

    Cook 2 cups of rice. (recommend short grain type) *Use "Japanese rice cup"

    Place warm cooked rice(21oz./600g) in a large bowl, and add 1 Seasoning packet. Mix quickly.

    Sprinkle 1 Seaweed topping, and serve.

    There were 2 tiny little silver packs inside that hold the sauce and veggies. I'm used to getting the one with the nori included but I guess my store doesn't carry it anymore. No worries, there is a huge Asain market about an hour away so I'll pick some up when I go.

    Yes, I still have the package but I have never posted a photo.
    I hear it's easy once you get the hang of it. I'll try to figure it out sometime.

    Oh and mine comes from the same company but I couldn't find it on the site w/english. Perhaps on their site you could locate it. Oh also the pic doesn't have those cute little reddish balls .....never did know what those were lol!

    Ok so if 600g is 5cups then 150g is 1 1/4cups....I guess.

    One more thing. I was served this dish cold. Is it strange that I prefer it warm?

    Sadly no. I just a new post letting you know that it is from the same company from your first pic. Hope that helps.

    wow, look here I found some more from Nagatanien:

    The pink packaging one says it makes rice pink. This one makes 4 servings total so each packet (there are two) makes only 2 servings it appears.

    The one on the left comes with black vinegar....kinda trendy now in Japan. The one on the right is ochazuke - mix with hot tea over cooked rice.

    There you go! Wow you are fast!!
    Mine is the pink one on the right!
    Pink rice icon_eek.gif Well, as long as it still tastes like chirashi zushi then I'll like it.
    When I go into the "city" I will look for that one on the right.
    Have you tried pink rice before?

    This one says it colors the rice peach color. Comes with 2 packets and each packet makes 2 servings. This makizushi was made using the packet. Pink color - Japanese sure likes the color pink (lol).

    What you have then is seasoning for ochazuke. You basically have cooked rice in a rice bowl or soup bowl (most likely 1 C cooked rice), sprinkle this packet over the rice and pour hot green tea to make flavored chirasisushi-like ochazuke.

    There are all kinds of flavored ochazuke packets. My favorite one is sukiyaki (really, really taste like regular sukiyaki). These are the ones I have on hand:

    sukiyaki , tarako , salmon , crab kimchi, etc.

    The chirashi or gomoku zushi kind are in much bigger packaging. I hope you can find it....really makes great chirashi zushi.
