How to Make Nigiri Sushi (How to Make Sushi Rice and Form the Sushi)

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 20 steps you must follow to make Nigiri Sushi (How to Make Sushi Rice and Form the Sushi) in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Combine the sushi vinegar ingredients and mix together well. Put into a pan and heat over low heat. When the sugar and salt have dissolved, it's done.
  • Step 2
  • Use freshly cooked rice. If you use rice that's been kept warm for a while, it won't absorb the sushi vinegar and will become wet and soggy. Use a bit less water than usual when cooking the rice.
  • Step 3
  • Transfer the freshly cooked rice to a pre-moistened wooden sushi tub, and pour on the sushi vinegar. Cut the vinegar into the rice with a rice paddle. Don't knead the rice.
  • Step 4
  • Fan the rice to evaporate any excess moisture. This also adds shine to the rice grains,
  • Step 5
  • When the rice has cooled down to the point where you can touch it with your hands, cover it with a tightly wrung out moistened kitchen towel, then with the lid.
  • Step 6
  • Each piece of nigiri sushi weighs about 16-18 g. With 3 rice cooker cups worth of rice (before cooking) you can make 55 to 60 pieces. When slicing the fish, slice against the grain.
  • Step 7
  • If you hold the knife vertically 2 mm before you slice though the fish, the cut side will have a nice and clean finish.
  • Step 8
  • This is how it looks when you hold the knife blade vertically. The right side of the slice will be a bit thicker.
  • Step 9
  • Moisten your hands with vinegar-water (50/50 rice vinegar and water mixed together). Hold a piece of topping (a fish slice here) in your right hand, and spread on a tiny bit of wasabi with your left index finger.
  • Step 10
  • Make a small round ball of sushi rice and place it on the topping. Make a dent in the sushi rice with your left thumb. This makes a packed sushi rice that is soft and gently falls apart in your mouth.
  • Step 11
  • Press the top and bottom of the shari with your right thumb and index finger.
  • Step 12
  • Press the shari with your right index finger to form the bottom of the sushi.
  • Step 13
  • Roll the whole sushi in your palm and turn it over so that the topping is on top.
  • Step 14
  • Press both sides with your right thumb and index finger.
  • Step 15
  • Press the top of the sushi with your left thumb while you press down with your right index finger.
  • Step 16
  • Flip it over.
  • Step 17
  • Press the sides as in Step 14.
  • Step 18
  • Press the top of the sushi with your left thumb while you press down on it with your right index finger, as in Step 15.
  • Step 19
  • The nigiri sushi is complete, but if it feels too loose, repeat Steps 13 to 15 again.
  • Step 20
  • Try making the sushi with all kinds of toppings - it's fun!
