Onigiri (Japanese rice balls)

Onigiri is a Japanese dish which is made from sticky Japanese rice shaped into a triangular shape. People in Japan usually make this for their lunch to take to work or school. You can put in all sorts of toppings into the onigiri such as grilled salmon, pickled plums or tuna! We didn’t have any toppings so we made plain onigiri with nori (Japanese seaweed) wrapped around. We seasoned the rice with sushi rice vinegar.

It’s pretty hard shaping the rice into a triangle and requires some skill (which I did not possess).

Ended up looking like a ball……

At least the nori covered up the rice ball to make it look a bit more appealing 😀
