      I also divided the recipe by thirds to make one cup of rice. It turned out great with Green Jade Bamboo rice and Forbidden Black rice. Both are short grain varieties that make colorful and delicious sushi.

      Pretty good balance of seasonings for us. I made 1 cup of rice just to make a couple of rolls and used 1/3rd of the shari ingredints too. On tasting, I gave the rice an additional few shakes of salt and a teaspoon or two more vinegar. I made this again and this time used 1 1/2 cups rice, 2 tablespoons sugar 3 tablespoons of vinegar and a teaspoon of salt. Perfect for us!
