Nigiri Sushi Recipe
1. Nigiri Sushi Simple
Ingredients Nigiri Sushi Simple :
- 400 grams of rice
- 700 ml of water
- 120 ml rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) vegetable oil
- 30 ml vinegar
- 1 teaspoon (4 grams) salt
- 6 slices of raw or cooked fish meat
- 120 grams of rice
- 1/2 teaspoon wasabi
- 480 ml of milk
- 120 grams of rice
- 1 paprika
- 120 ml dead
- 60 ml rice vinegar
- 1 scallion
How to cook Nigiri Sushi Simple :
- Clean the rice in a sieve until the rinse water looks clear. Put 400 grams of rice in a rice filter and place it in the sink.
- Wash the rice with cold water until the rinse water looks clear and not cloudy. By rinsing it, the rice will not feel sticky or burn at the bottom of the pot/container while cooking.
- Put water and rice in a saucepan. Take a large pot and add the washed rice along with 700 ml of water.
- The whole rice will be submerged in the water. If not, just add a little water to get a delicious and soft rice.
If you have a constellation cooker, use it instead of cooking rice on the stove.
- Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat to allow the water to heat up. Turn the stove to high heat and wait until you see small air bubbles collect and form a water surface.
- Then, lower the heat to medium-low until you see only small bubbles (this means you’re bringing the water to a low simmer and you’ve reached the ideal temperature for cooking the rice). If you boil the water too long, the rice will burn. Keep an eye on the pot or pot so the rice doesn’t burn!
- Cover the pot or pot and cook the rice for 20 minutes. The steam retained by the pot lid speeds up the rice cooking process so you need to maintain or contain the heat.
- Set the timer for 20 minutes so the rice can absorb all the water. If there is still water remaining in the bottom of the pot, cook the rice a little longer.
- Any water remaining in the pan (and giving the rice a “muddy” texture) indicates that the rice is not fully cooked and so it may have a slightly crunchy texture.
- Remove the pan from the stove and let it sit for 5 minutes to cool. Turn off the heat and move the pot/cook (with the lid still on) to another place or a burnt stove. Let sit for about 5 minutes so that the rice can absorb the remaining water and steam until it is thoroughly cooked.
- This step is also important to follow so that the rice does not get too sticky. Therefore, do not let you pass it!
- Combine rice vinegar, oil, sugar and salt in a small saucepan. Pour 120 ml of rice vinegar, 15 ml (1 tablespoon) of vegetable oil, 30 ml of vinegar and 4 grams of salt into a small saucepan. Stir gently to mix all ingredients.
These ingredients add extra flavor to the rice and make the rice stick together, making it easier to shape.
- Heat the mixture over medium heat until the sugar melts. Usually, this process takes about 5 minutes.
- Once the sugar has melted and melted, turn off the heat and move the pan to another place to cool the mixture.
If you don’t want to bother removing the pan from the stove, you can microwave the ingredients for 30 seconds in increments until the sugar melts.
- Cool the mixture, then add it to the rice. Set the mixture aside for about 5 minutes until the temperature has dropped. Place the rice in a glass bowl, then pour the mixture over it. Use a spatula to stir the mixture with the rice until no mixture remains.
- The first time you mix the ingredients with the rice, the rice may look too “wet”. However, keep stirring the two. In the end, all the ingredients will be evenly mixed.
- After making the rice, set it aside and start preparing your main ingredient of sushi. Enjoy your Nigiri Sushi
