Onigiri Wrapped in Roasted Nori
In a post earlier this week, I made reference to onigiri (rice balls) wrapped in roasted nori (seaweed). Here's a photo of onigiri I made this afternoon. I cooked some Japanese sushi rice this morning. When the rice cooled down, I wet my fingers, sprinkled a bit of salt in my palms, grabbed a some handful of rice, and began pressing and molding the rice into a somewhat triangular shape. I wrapped a strip of nori around the rice ball and ate.
My mother would add a pickled plum in the center of the rice ball.
