    Serves: 2


    cups of ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Use "Sushi Rice" only, also knows as "Kagayaki" or"Koshihikari" rice.
    2. 2
      Put rice in a bowl and fill with water you will notice the water is cloudy. Drain water out and repeat the process until the water is clear.
    3. 3
      Bring 1 cup of rice and 1 cup of water to a boil.
    4. 4
      Reduce to a simmer and cover.
    5. 5
      Cook about 15minutes. Just until all the water is adsorbed, could be more or less time. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
    6. 6
      Remove the rice from the heat and let sit, still covered, for 10min.
    7. 7
      Spread rice on a flat surface. You want it to spread out as much as possible to cool quickly.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle on 1 Tbs of SEASONED Rice Vinegar.
    9. 9
      If you have just "Rice Vinegar" combine 1Tbs Vinegar with 1Tbs Sugar and 1tsp Salt and it is the same thing. Put mixture over heat in a sauce pan or in the microwave to dissolve sugar and salt.
    10. 10
      Work vinegar through rice by pushing around with a spoon, also start fanning your rice. You want the rice to cool as quickly as possible.
    11. 11
      The rice should have a sheen all over, if it does not add a little more vinegar.
    12. 12
      Wet your hands and form the rice into a ball, it should stick together and still pull apart into individual pieces.
    13. 13
      Use 3/4 to 1 cup of cooked rice per sheet of Nori (seaweed).
    14. 14
