Rice Balls Recipe

Rice Balls Recipe

Ingredients :

1 1/4 cups short grain rice

1 1/3 cups water

2 teaspoons black sesame seeds

50 g smoked salmon, chopped

2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled ginger

2 onions, chopped finely

 

Method :

Thoroughly wash the short grain rice in a sieve using clean running water. With a heavy-based pan, place the washed rice with the water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to very low, cover with the lid and ook for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let it stand covered for another 20 minutes.

 

Use a dry frying pan to dry-roast the sesame seeds on low heat, shaking the pan constantly for 1-2 minutes or until the seeds begin to pop. Combine the ginger, salmon, and scallions in a small bowl. Wet your hands and form 1/3 or the rice into a ball. Push 2 teaspoons of the salmon mixture into the center of the rice. Close the hole back with rice. Repeat the process for the remaining rice and salmon mixture. Arrange the rice balls on a serving platter and sprinkle with some toasted sesame seeds. Serve.
