DIRECTIONS

  • Wash rice in a colander until water runs clear.
  • Drain well and then soak for 30 minutes.
  • Put rice and water in a sauce pan make sure it has a tight fitting lid and wrap a tea towel around the lid to keep the steam inside
  • Heat until boiling then turn to low and steam for 15 mins finally turn the heat off and let stand for a further 15 minutes. DO NOT LIFT THE LID OFF AT THIS TIME!
  • Let the rice cool enough so it is warm but won't burn your hands when picked up.
  • At this point if using fillings or flavorings add them to the rice.
  • Wet hands and add a little salt if you feel like it. Take some rice and shape it into a circle, triangle, cat head whatever you want.
  • It is quite difficult don't worry if yours are wonky!
  • Add filling and or garnish at this stage and finish with a strip of nori either round the edge or as a "napkin" at one end.
