How to make Kosher Sushi Rice?

Making sushi rice takes a little more than just boiling rice and water. First of all, we need a good sushi rice, which usually says “sushi rice” or California short grain rice. Sushi rice is cooked with less water because we want to be the rice dry. Why? So it will take in and absorb the delicate tastes and seasoning. But not to dry… Let’s say it should be enough dry to separate but individually sticky.

How do you do it? You take 4 cups of rice and a little less than 4 cups of water. You will also need ¼ of kosher rice vinegar, 1 ½ tablespoon salt and 1 tablespoon full of sugar.

Wash the rice, drain and drain for 10 minutes.
Let the rice steam in the cooker for 40 minutes.
Put the rice in a wooden bowl (or non-metallic) and pour the vinegar, sugar and salt. Toss the rice and cool the rice, covering it with a paper towel.

After the rice cooled down, try and shape it in your fingers. If it falls apart, it means it’s too wet and you need to use less vinegar or water.

How to make the Obama Sushi Roll?

Last week we've blogged about the world craziest sushi. Turns out that one sushi caught your attention and it was the Obama Roll. Many of our hungry readers were interested to know whether the Obama sushi was real, and if we serve it. Well, it is real but we don't think that eating the Prez is kosher.

Anyway, for all of our dedicated readers, here's the Obama roll, step by step. The roll was made by Chef Ken Kawazumi, in Tokyo. Everybody say konnichiwa to the Chef...


As you can see below, the Chef used black sesame seeds for the hair, and amaboko(processed fish paste) for the mouth and teeth. The President's skin was made out of brown rice.


But wait! There's more. The Chef decided to go and make the American Flag. He used rice as the white background and tuna for the red stripes.


To finish the deal, he created another American icon out of yellow rice:


And the final result was more than just a portrait of Obama, it was a tribute to the US of A :


If you must know, the cars' windows are made out of cucumber, and front lights are made of burdock root:


Can you do a creative sushi? A roll that looks just like JFK? Your mom? The Empire State building? Yes you can!
