◒ Koshihikari Rice
◒ Nori (Seaweed wraps)
◒ Furikake (Japanese seasonings)
◒ Optional fillings: canned salmon, regular salmon, canned tuna, regular tuna, canned chicken, regular sliced chicken, etc. seasoned to your preference.
◒ Cook the rice with light salt
◒ Once the rice is cooked, throw it into a mixing bowl with the furikake and mix evenly.
◒ Separate the rice into equal portions (big enough to be a large handful)
◒ Wet your hands with salt water (add a pinch of salt to it) to avoid rice sticking to your hands
◒ Grab a portion of rice & make the indent to insert the filling
Note: Don't put too much filling so that it won't fit in the rice.
◒ Fold the rice over and lightly press into a ball
◒ Using your fingertips while resting the rice in your palm, press and squeeze the rice into a triangular shape. Do so lightly and slowly if it's your first time so it doesn't break.
◒ Place a slice of nori on the bottom and fold it up towards the middle.
◒ Chicken salad
◒ Canned tuna and mayo with spicy chili seasoning
◒ Smoked salmon
◒ Spicy tofu
◒ Imitation Krab and spicy chili garlic seasoning
