The first time I tried rice and seaweed, I was in the second grade and this little Korean girl had it for lunch. I don't remember exactly, but some how we began to talk about what she was eating. She was sip sweet, she offered some to me. Unlike children that age, I was pretty open minded about foods, and I tried some. It was the best thing i had ever eaten lol. I love Asian dishes now. I'll always remember

Thank you for the tutorial.  I made some last night for my daughter and myself for a late night snack.  My filling was fried tofu with a sesame seed coating.  After making the onigiri, I rolled them in some extra sesame seeds and sprinkled them with soy sauce.  My daughter was so impressed that she asked for seconds!  This late night snack prevented her from going to the convenience store and buying junk food!  Thanks again!

Hey Emmy, I was wondering if you can do a remake of this video and add in a little sauce to go with the Riceball. I would recommend mixing siracha and mayo as the sauce. It's really delicious

XD you sold me at "like a sandwich..." Just throwing it out there, I mean the shape you have there the traditional triangle/teardrop is equal parts insightful as it is ingenious. I mean think about the physics of it, if you made a ball you'd just smear your lunch on your face but the trangle provides exceptional balance (2/3 surface area for holding to 1/3 for eating) but also gives you a starting point to your lunch, after the first bite I suspect things solve themselves.

if you use plastic wrap you can mold it into anything you want.

I made and tried Onigiri today! I put leftover salmon from last night's dinner and a bit of the homemade tartar sauce I made to go with it inside and it was delicious. I am finding that maybe Nori and I don't get along - I'm still not sure I like it and used it sparingly, but I loved everything else. Thanks for the tutorial!

@deliciouscrusties - Thanks for asking, since I forgot to mention it in the video. I used everyday Japanese rice which is shorter-grained & therefore slightly sticky and holds the onigiri's shape. Abroad I believe it's sold as sushi rice; just be careful not to add too much water. Good luck!

Hmm wonder how it would be with packed salmon and something else. Do you ever duo it in anything?

No, you need to use Japanese rice. Sometimes it's sold as sushi rice. Regular rice (long grain, Thai jasmine, instant, etc.) aren't sticky enough and your onigiri won't hold together.

Made 2 onigiri for my son's lunch to put in his brand new bento box. Went for seeds. It was a lot easier to form then I was expecting! Took about a minute per onigiri only. I made one for myself and omg it is very filling and delicious, I love the crispy nori! My son never was a fan of sandwiches so this will replace them nicely. Thank you for teaching us how to make them!

Hey Emmy - I had onigiri today and it made me think to swing by this video and leave a comment. I saw this not long after it came out, so sometime in 2011, and decided to try it. I made tuna, just like this, and was astonished at how delicious I found the combination. I've been making it ever since then and it's all due to watching you. Thank you!
