HOME MADE SUSHI RICE
I just love sushi. With this easy tricks you can eat fresh home-made sushi whenever and with the high quality you want without paying the extraorbitant prices real sushi places charge. Come on …they are realy crazily expensive!
2 cups uncooked glutinous white rice (sushi rice)
3 cups water
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Rinse the rice in a strainer until the water runs clear. Combine with water in a pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Rice should be tender but with a bite and water should be absorbed. Meanwhile, combine the rice vinegar, oil, sugar and salt. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Pour the hot rice into a big bowl and spread out. Pour the vinegar mix over the rice and mix it in slicing motions with a wooden spatula or spoon. Don’t stir, that will make the rice stick together too much and be smushy. Mix until rice is dry and slightly sticky.
Let cool and make your favourite sushi. No limits for creativity!
