uncooked glutinous white rice (sushi rice)
this had a great ratio of ingredients! a good tip that i have about cooking sushi rice perfectly if you have a rice cooker is after rinsing your rice, put your hand flat on top of the rice and allow the water to fill until it just covers your hand. a japanese friend taught me that, and it has turned out perfectly every time, even when my husband does it, and he has much larger hands than I do!
The rice was cooked well, but it was way too sweet and vinegary for my taste. I could eat sushi rice for a meal, so I was pretty disappointed. I may try it again, but with much less vinegar and sugar. Other recipes that I've tried use a fraction of what this one calls for...
This recipe has a good ratio of ingredients - I like my rice a bit on the vinegary side, I guess. The only changes I made were to cut out the oil and to add everything to the water in the beginning in stead of cooking the sugar/vinegar mixture seperately. This allows the flavors to really sink in, and it makes the whole process easier, too.
This is a great recipe for sushi rice. Instead of boiling the vinegar/sugar/ salt, I just put it in the microwave for about 1 minute. It comes out the same!
I used a rice cooker as well and I use 1 cup rice for 1 1/4 cup liquid ratio.
If you use Kokuho Rose sushi rice you do not have to rinse before cooking.
This is really good!!
I always use this rice recipe in my sushi rolls, and everyone raves about them I HIGHLY recommend this recipe if you are making sushi! (I just bought short-grain rice from my grocery store- they didn't have sushi rice, but I think it is pretty much the same thing. It worked out perfect for me.)
I used the suggestion of reviewer JamieS. She was right, it did turn out perfectly. I reduced the sugar and vinegar by a smidge, and cooked rice in a rice cooker.
This was great. I agree it would have been to much vinegar. I did reduce the Vinegar to 1/3 cup and I tasted the rice as I was mixing in the liquid and stopped when it had the right flavor (I didnt use it all). Half of cooking is tasting as you go and this turned out beautifuly for me.
