Sushi Rice #1

Category: Rice

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Japanese white rice
  • 2 1/2 c Water
  • 1/3 c Mirin (rice cooking wine)
  • 3 tb Rice vinegar
  • 1/2 ts Salt


Gently rinse the rice a couple of times until the water is clear. Drain it
in a colander for half an hour. Place the rice and water in a heavy pot
covered tightly with a lid. Cook over medium-high heat for 10 minutes
until steam escapes the lid. Immediately turn the heat to low and cook for
10 - 15 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed. Remove from the
heat and let the rice stand, covered, for 10 minutes.

In the meantime, heat the mirin, vinegar, and salt in a small saucepan
until the salt is dissolved.

Put the cooked rice in a large mixing bowl. While vigorously fanning the
rice to cool it (newspapers or a small electric fan is useful, not to
mention a friend), slowly stir in the mirin mixture. Continue stirring and
fanning until the rice is cool. Makes 4 cups.
