Sushi Rice

Sushi Rice is like fried rice to us that I cook it as often as once a week. I prepare lots of stuff with it, be it sushi, maki rolls, or just plain sushi rice in a bowl topped with fish; raw or cooked and other finger foods.


3 1/4 cups water
3 cups Japanese rice
1/3 cup rice wine
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt

Japanese rice tends to be sticky compared to other rice grains that's why its ideal to use it so they don't fall apart.

1. Pour rice into rice cooker. Wash it as you would wash normal rice. Pour 3 1/4 cups water and cook.

2. In a pan, combine rice wine, sugar and salt. Put pan on low heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Cool the mixture.

3. When rice is cooked, put it on a large plate and pour the vinegar mixture over and mix evenly and carefully with a wooden spoon.

Serve rice with your favorite cold cuts, fish or as sushi, maki roll or musubi...which will be our next food trip!

I don't know why I eat this a lot, when I don't really like vinegar! But then rice wine tastes better than vinegar...=D

Sushi rice, yes! My favorite as well. We love it with both Japanese, Korean and sometimes Filipino food.:)
BTW do you cook adobo?

Not much Oggi, I cook adobo sometimes and add liver for my son's sake (he has iron-deficiency)...=D Not your typical adobo-loving pinoy family hehe. Hubby and kids enjoy spicy food...that I think comes from the chinese blood lol.
