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.
Ah! Finally I can make sushi! If you don't make good rice, you don't have very good sushi and this is the first recipe that I have found that works for me! Thank you!
