How to Make Sushi Rice
Wash the rice under running cold water until the water runs clear. Drain and shake the excess water off.
Place the washed rice in a saucepan and add 2.5 cups of water. Bring it to a boil. Then cook on a low heat for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the rice seasoning by mixing together rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a small dish until sugar is fully dissolved. Set aside.
When the rice is fully cooked, transfer the rice into a large dish.
Pour the rice seasoning over the rice. And gently mix everything with a wooden spatula, using a cutting and folding motion.
The rice will also get stickier in the process. Avoid smashing the rice, you don’t want to make mashed rice here. Be gentle!
Then cover the rice with damp kitchen towel and prepare the fillings.
