Sushi Rice Video

YouTube Link: Sushi Rice
More Videos: Helen's Kitchen Channel

300g short grain sushi rice* (1 and 1/2 c )
390g water (1 and 2/3 c)

50 g rice wine vinegar (1/4 cup)
25 g sugar (2 Tbsp)
6 g salt (2 tsp Diamond Crystal Kosher or 1 tsp Table Salt)

Unfortunately, I ran out my favorite rice when shooting this video and got whatever I could at a local Asian Market. If you want a really great rice try to find new crop Koshihikari. Here are some options on amazon:

and here is a better deal if you want to buy a big bag

Hello Helen,
thank you for such detailed video! I tried as you instructed and it worked out very well!
I used oven method.
Is there a way to prepare and STORE sushi rice in advance? How to store it?

thank you very much!

You can keep it at room temperature for up to 4 hours. There is no way to refrigerate it without terrible quality loss. I hear some people freeze it. If you google for "freezing sushi rice" you'll get some info, though I've never tried that.
