"Nothing beats a jelly-filled donut!" - Brock
Onigiri are Japanese rice balls. They come in a variety of fillings, including chicken, tuna, and salmon. More traditional fillings include bonito flakes and soy sauce, roe, and chopped Japanese pickles (tsukemono). You can also experiment with different shapes - round, square, trianglular, and so on.
Of course, if you think Brock would never lie to you, you can also try these rice ball donuts.
- Place the rice in a sieve and rinse under cold water (about two minutes).
- Cook rice, preferably using a rice cooker. If boiling rice over the stove, bring pot of water and rice to a boil and let simmer until the rice has absorbed the water (about 12 minutes).
- Let rice cool enough to be handled(about 5 minutes).
- Using your hands, shape the rice into a ball that will fit in the palm of your hand.
- Make a well in the rice and spoon in some filling.
- Shape the ball to cover the filled well with rice.
- Before eating, wrap the onigiri with seaweed(as in the above picture).
- In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together.
- In a small bowl, combine water, flour, and cornstarch. If batter is too thin, add more flour.
- In another bowl, mix remaining ingredients together.
- Add just enough of the flour batter to the vegetable mixture so not to overwhelm the veggies (may not use all of the batter).
- Mix until well combined.
