  • Step 1/4

    • 300 g sushi rice
    • bowl (large)
    • sieve

    Add sushi rice and some water to a bowl. Mix vigorously with your hands for approx. 10 sec. Add more water to the bowl, then drain. Repeat the process several times until the water runs through clear.

  • Step 2/4

    • 400 ml water
    • pot

    Transfer rinsed rice to a pot. Add water, cover the pot, and let the rice soak for approx. 15 min.

  • Step 3/4

    Put a lid on the pot and bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. As soon as it starts steaming, reduce the heat to low and cook the rice, covered, for approx. 8 min. Don’t remove the lid until the rice is done cooking. Remove from heat and let rest, covered, for approx. 20 min.

  • Step 4/4

    • 40 ml rice vinegar
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ¾ tbsp sugar
    • bowl (small)
    • cooking spoon

    In the meantime, mix rice vinegar, salt, and sugar in a bowl. Transfer the rice to a large bowl and drizzle with sushi vinegar. Mix carefully so that you don’t crush the rice. Let the sushi rice cool before handling. Enjoy!
