Hi there (^.^)v
it's a cooking post again this time ♥
Some time ago I tried to make onigiri (riceballs) for the frist time.
I think they turned out quite good,
so let me show you how to make them:
This is what you need:
- rice (obviously)
- nori (dried sea weed sheets)
- something to fill them (I used furikake for flavour)
and optional: an onigiri mold
First, you need to cook the rice.
When it is done, the rice need to cool down to become more sticky.
Because I used furikake to give flavour to the rice,
I devided it into two and sprinkled it with furikake.
I used two different flavours:
the left is with various vegetables
and the right on with perilla (a kind of herb)
Then you are ready to shape the rice into onigiri ^.^
Usually they have a triangle form
like the onigiri mold I used
I wraped them into wrapping film to store them in fridge over night.
You can eat them right after shaping them, but I wanted
to take them with me next day for Fashion Walk in Hamburg.
So on the next day, I wrapped them into nori sheets.
(it's better to do this briefly before eating them,
because the nori soaks a lot water and becomes quite chewy then)
They people who tried them, said the were good ^-^
But I still need to improve a lot.
Next time I will try to fill them x3
Feel free to try to make them yourself ^-^
Onigiri are really delicious *-*
One of my favourite japanese food ♥
