Sushi Rice
SUSHI RICE

INGREDIENTS (Serves: 2)

  • 2 cups mama san Sushi Rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 80ml mama san Sushi Vinegar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Measuring and preparing the rice
    -Rinse the rice. (1 cup of 250g = 3 rolls, 2 cups = 6 rolls) with cold water until there is no more milky-looking starch coming out of it (until the water is clear).
    -After you are done rinsing, take the rice and place it gently in a pot (or rice cooker if you’re using one).
    -Add water (1 cup = 1.2 cups water, 2 cup = 2.4 cups water).
    -For best results, leave the washed rice to soak in the water for 15 to 30 minutes before cooking.
  2. Cooking the rice. If cooking in a rice cooker, please follow the Rice Cooker instructions. If cooking in a pot:
    -The rice should be cooked on high heat at first (covered with a lid) until the water boils.
    -Then reduce the heat to minimum and simmer covered for 20 minutes.
    -Remove from heat and, for best results, let stand covered for 15 to 30 minutes.
    -Take out the rice with a non-metallic spoon (eg. a wooden spoon) and place on a large non-metallic tray (in a thin layer if possible to help the rice to cool).
  3. Seasoning the rice
    -Sprinkle the mama san Sushi Vinegar on top of the rice.
    -Mix thoroughly with a gentle chopping motion (using a non-metallic spoon or spatula).
    -Let the rice cool down for a few minutes until it reaches room temperature.
