Rice 1 cup
Water 1 1/5th cups
Vinegar 2 Tbsp
Sugar 1/2 Tbsp
Salt 1 tsp
Prepare a non-metallic mixing tub/bowl, preferable wooden or glass (make sure its not polished since the vinegar will remove the wax polish).
Wash mixing tub/bowl well. Dry with kitchen towel
Put cooked rice into mixing tub/bowl and spread it evenly over bottom of the tub/bowl.
Sprinkle vinegar mixture generously over the rice. You may not need all of the vinegar mixture. Do not add too much liquid.
With a large wooden spoon, mix riice with slicing motion.
While mixing, use an electric fan. This is not to cool the sushi rice but to puff the extra liquid away
Keep sushi rice in the wood tub, covered with a damp cloth.
