Is there any way to give a flavour to jap rice? will it lose it's 'stickyness'? I'm talking about using broth or something like that

Anyway, post your ideas for onigiri fillings.

I always think onigiri looks like a helmet because the first time I've ever seen onigiri was in Stick Rangers and I always thought the onigiri mobs drop were white helmets.
>>
>>7046889
If you use high quality rice, it will have a subtle flavor.
>>
>>7046928
No it wont.

Japanese people use furikake, nori, and/or some kind of filling like tuna, mendaiko, or umeboshi.
>>
>>7046889
My kid hated sandwiches so I just started making her onigiri.Most times I would put seasoned crab meat inside of it. She never came back with it in her bag like a sandwich. I also have a cucumber and fish roe one but I eat those.
>>
>>7046889
stock. or seasoned rice wine vinegar.
or both. it will still be sticky.
>>
>>7046954

May I add meat juice to the water? I was also thinking about using honey pink salmon as a filling.

I like this stuff, it's my favorite flavor furikake. You can get them at asian supermarkets, near the spices. They are like 2 dollars each
>>
Look up rice seasoning
>>
A nice rich, fatty broth will produce delicious rice, but the fat makes it less sticky. Use totally lean broth to maintain the texture. Packaged is fine.

For less drastic flavor enhancement do what those daffy nips do and throw a piece of konbu in there. It adds some subtle oceanic flavorness, and probably "umami" or some shit.

As for onigiri filling, my favorite is tuna salad. Light on the salad, heavy on the mayo. Also goes great with furikake.

>>7046889
use broth
add a little bit more broth than you would water
it will make the rice taste more like whatever broth you use
it's fine
It will still be sticky as long as you make it the right way

>>7046889
i hear chocolate is a great flavoring for your donuts

I agree with a certain quality of rice being better for the flavor profile. I know they vinegar their rice.

my question is, what kind of broth? theres so many broths, id just use a chicken broth but that's no go.

a rice wine broth might be tastier. ive had some that is pretty sweet and tasty
>>
Lucky Peach cookbook says to salt your hands while rolling, which give it a nice flavor.
>>
>>7047282
Nothing you've posted is constructive

Salt.

Onigiri usually are made with salt and often some kind of pickle or other salty filling.

In fact the Japanese have a TON of salt in their diet. I don't know why people view it as being so "healthy" except for the weeb factor.

Plus, rice that is worth eating will have some kind of natural flavor anyway. Usually it's ever so slightly nutty. And Japanese rice tends to be chewy, so the texture is interesting.

I personally like toasting before cooking but I have experimented too much with it outside of brown rice, jasmine and white medium
>>
While the rice is fresh and hot from the rice cooker fold sea salt into it.
>>
>>7047708
Maybe it's because Japs have the longest life-expectancy?
>>
>>7047708
Salt isn't bad for you

You fell for the high blood pressure meme- its actually arteriosclerosis

Japan has a disproportionately high level of strokes.

What kind of tuna is used? Like canned tuna?
>>
>>7046889
Sushi uses vinegared rice.
>>
>>7048576
Couldn't that be also partly because they have an old population?
>>
>>7046889
You can mix the rice with rice vinegar and sugar, or add furikake, or add a filing.
>>
>>7048601
Even with an older population it's pretty high for a nation with such low rates of obesity.
>>
>>7048600
No it doesn't
>>
>>7049362
The sweet vinegar is literally the entire point of sushi, how can you get that so wrong?
>>
>>7046889
You're supposed to put a filling in onigiri
Like a jelly donut

I have no idea what you're talking about. Looks fine to me.

This recipe uses chicken broth

Nope, higher rates of stroke in areas with higher salt intake. Especially in small traditional fishing villages where a large part of the diet is salted fish.
>>
>>7046969

Nothing beats the original.
>>
>>7047698

>lucky peach cookbook

What?
>>
>>7052030
Oh well, at least they enjoyed the taste.

I like to eat salted anchovies as chips which makes me remember the look of horror people gave me when I found out I was snacking on dried anchovies.

>>7052057
The rice seasoning with dried Bonito flakes is even better.
>>
>>7052064

>with dried bonito flakes

It's the third from the last ingredient, but it's in there.
>>
>>7052064
Those baby dried anchovies are so good though, I fry them and eat them with rice.
>>
>>7052069
I see it now, that's not a lot though.

>>7052076
They certainly are.

If were to get capital punishment and I could get one last meal it would be baby anchovies with a side dish of capers, salty heaven
