Cuisine: Japanese
  • 2 cups sushi rice

  1. Rinse rice in cold water, 3 to 4 times. Drain fully
  2. Add rice and water to rice cooker and cook according to manufacturer's instructions.
  3. While rice is cooking, mix remaining ingredients. Stir until sugar dissolves.

  6. Gently mix seasoning liquid into rice trying to evenly coat every rice grain
  7. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature.
