How to make perfect sushi rice

 

This tutorial on how to make the perfect sushi rice is a must have. I’ll let you in on a secret here and tell you that making sushi rice has up until now eluded me. No matter what I try I just never seem to get the sushi rice quite right. I either cook it until it is one big mush or so that the centre of the rice isn’t properly cooked.

So hence my resolve to get over the sushi rice dilemma and get it right once and for all. In doing this I think that I have found the secret to getting the sushi rice correct!

Conquering this sushi rice demon is a big deal for me for a few reasons. Firstly it is expensive to keep buying it pre-cooked. Secondly we all love sushi. And thirdly the little ones in the family love making their own sushi (they have such fun doing this but my word the mess…).

Anyway I have now discovered that making my own sushi rice is possible and a world of sushi rice recipe possibilities have opened up. I hope that you enjoy making your own sushi rice as much as I did, Leanne xoxo
