Cuisine: Japanese
Serves: 10 balls
These rice balls make great finger food. Their shape and sturdy nature means they can be packed in lunchboxes too without fear of them falling apart mid-school day. Just wrap each ball in a piece of cling film and twist at the top to seal. This recipe makes 10 balls.
  • 1 packet SunRice Sushi Rice
  • 2 tbsp sushi vinegar (from a Japanese or Korean grocery store)
  • 2 tbsp Japanese rice seasoning powder
  • Kewpie mayonnaise (optional)
  • Your choice of filling (tinned tuna, fried fish, cooked mince)
  • 1 sushi ball press (available from Daiso for $2.80)
How to make it
  1. Microwave the rice in its bag for 2 minutes. Tip the contents of the bag out into a bowl and add the sushi vinegar. Mix well with a rice paddle.
  2. Add the Japanese rice seasoning and mix well with a rice paddle.
  3. Put enough rice in the sushi ball press to fill it to half way. Make a dent in the rice and place the filling inside the indent.
  4. Fill the sushi ball press to the top with more rice and place the lid on. Squeeze the two halves together.
  5. Remove the lid and pop the rice balls out. Top with mayo.
