How to make Omusubi (rice balls)


Using cooked hot rice is an essencial point.

Add a teaspoon of salt to 1 cup of water. Put salt water on both hands to prevent sticking (temizu). Remember to put salt water on both hands before making each rice ball. Put about a handful of rice into a small bowl and shake bowl to make a roughly round shape before packing with hands into a ball (Fillings can be set in the center). Make sure you tightly pack while forming the rice ball to prevent crumbling. If too tightly packed it is not tasty.

Triangular Omusubi (This is a suitable form for any filling)

Hold rice in left palm (or right, if left-handed). Fillings can be set in the center of rice and covered. Using other palm with slightly bend fingers and hold together on top to pack rice. The upper palm forms a triangle while the lower hand holds the rice in between the thumb and fingers widthwise. Repeat packing three times to form a triangular omusubi.

Round Omusubi

Same as Triangular. Use upper palm roundly bent.

Ball Omusubi

Same as Round. Use lower palm also roundly bent.

Tawara (straw bag) Omusubi

Shoud be small (2 bites size) to look neat. It is too small to put fillings in the center, so mix fillings together with rice for easy making. Hold rice in left palm (or right, if left-handed) and gently squeeze into the form of a log. Use top palm to hold widthwise and roll with both hands.

Kinchaku (purse) Omusubi

Cover a small bowl entirely with plastic wrap and place rice on top. If desired, add fillings to the center and cover with rice. Hold rice together by picking up the edges of the plastic wrap and squeezing lightly to pack. This is an easy to make with small portions of rice. Freeze as is and heat in a microwave oven prior to eating.
