Perfect Sushi Rice (every damn time)

Yes, you CAN add rice vinegar and get all fancy. But first, get the basics right – it’s easy! Just follow these simple instructions and your rice will be sticky and perfectly cooked.


1.5 cups short grain rice

2 cups water

pinch of salt


Rinse rice very well, to remove as much of the “talc” as possible. Place rice, water and salt in a pot and turn up to highest heat. When boiling, turn down to lowest heat. Cover and leave for exactly 10 minutes. Do not peek – this will reduce the precious steam the rice needs.


  1. Right, I’m gonna admit that I actually never followed a recipe when cooking sushi rice and I think it’s about time to do it because sometimes it’s just perfect and others it’s not!
