• *1/2 package of Aburaage (thin deep-fried tofu pouches)
  • 3 cups of sushi rice (short-grained white rice)
  • 6 cups of water
  • 6 tbsp of rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • 1 tsp of salt


  1. Boil the prepared Aburaage in hot water for a minute and drain well.
  2. Remove the Aburaage from the water and let them cool.
  3. Rinse the rice in a strainer until the water runs clear. Pour the rice into a saucepan and add 6 cups of water. Bring the rice and water to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the saucepan and let the rice cook for 20 minutes.
  4. In a small saucepan, combine the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt. Cook over medium heat until the sugar and salt dissolved.
  5. Scoop the rice into a large bowl. Add in the rice vinegar and mix well.
  6. Take a triangular Aburaage and open it to make a pouch. Stuff the pouch with sushi rice. Repeat for all Aburaage.
