- 3 cups (600g) sushi or shortgrain rice
- 3 cups (750ml) water
- 1/2 cup (125ml) rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons (40g) caster sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 measuring cup = 200g rice; 1 rice cup (usually supplied with rice cookers) = 150g rice.
Place rice in a large bowl and fill with enough water to cover the rice. Gently stir with hand for about 30 seconds, then drain. Repeat the process 3 times until the water is almost clear. Drain rice in a fine mesh sieve (or line a colander with a teatowel) and leave for 30 minutes.
