Original recipe yields 5 cups

Directions

  1. Rinse the rice in a strainer or colander until the water runs clear. Combine with water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Rice should be tender and water should be absorbed. Cool until cool enough to handle.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, oil, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Cool, then stir into the cooked rice. When you pour this in to the rice it will seem very wet. Keep stirring and the rice will dry as it cools.

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!

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!
