Chef Rika's Onigiri "Rice Balls"

2m 40s

In this episode, we'll be making onigiri rice balls, a favorite in Japan among young and old alike. This simple dish is made by lightly salting freshly cooked rice, and shaping it into triangles or rough cylinders, then wrapping it in nori seaweed. Chef Rika will be showing us some tricks to make rice balls even tastier. For our side dishes, we'll be making Kimpira and Tamagoyaki rolled omelet -- perfect for bento meals! Our crisp Kimpira is made with potato and carrot, while the Tamagoyaki omelet has a deliciously tender, fluffy texture.
