Below is the Recipe for the Sushi Rice!
Basic Sushi Rice
1-1/2 cups rice
2 cup water
Add the rice and water to a medium saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Add a lid and cook the rice for 20 minutes. Then turn off the heat and allow the rice to sit, covered, for 5 minutes.
Transfer the rice to a medium mixing bowl.
In a small bowl, stir the sugar into the vinegar until it is dissolved. Hold a wooden spoon over the bowl of rice and pour the vinegar so that it runs down the spoon and is evenly distributed over the rice. Then stir the mixture. The rice should be sticky. Allow the rice to cool to room temperature.
Makes 4 cups (slightly packed) sushi rice.
Devin Says: Do not use leftover rice for sushi. It should always be made fresh and cooled, ideally for a couple of hours.
Devin Says: Save money by seeking out an Asian specialty market in your area. Not only will you find tons of unique prepared sauces and foods, key Asian ingredients like sushi rice, wasabi, soy paper and even Saki tend to be much less expensive when purchased there.
