ONIGIRI/OMUSUBI (Rice Ball)
Have you ever watched Japanese cartoon movie 「Spirited Away」? I like that movie. If you have watched it, you have seen a girl 'Chihiro' was eating riceball. that is 'ONIGIRI / OMUSUBI'!
- Steamed Japanese rice or Sushi Rice (3cup)
- salt (to taste)
- NORI Seaweed (any)
- UMEBOSHI pickled plum (1)
- grilled salted salmon (1 tbsp)
How to Prepare
place cooked rice in a bowl, sprinkle salt, and fold gently.
Place a third of rice on a plastic wrap.
orm into triangle or a ball with your both palms and pressing gently lightly.
Off the Plastic wrap. then, Wrap the riceball with a strip of NORI seaweed if you like.
If you want to put UMEBOSHI in, Remove the seed from UMEBOSHI. Place a third of rice on a plastic wrap, then make a dent in the middle of rice, then put UMEBOSHI in the dent. Form in to triangle or a ball with your both palms and pressing gently lightly. off the Plastic wrap.
If you want to mix salmon in a rice, Pick off the fresh of a grilled salmon.
add salmon in a rice. Place a third of salmon mixed rice on a plastic wrap, then form into triangle or a ball with your both palms and pressing gently lightly. off the Plastic wrap.
yum-! If it's too difficult to make a triangle OMUSUBI, don't worry. you can make a round one, and it's so fine!
and, Onigiri is good for breakfast, lunch or lunch box and late-night snack!
