How to make Rilakkuma inari-zushi (by AnnaTheRed)
this is a recipe for onigiri, but it’s in japanese. there are helpful pictures and you can use google translate! haha.
Translated(ish) the recipe for all those interested
4 inari ( can buy them, or make them using this recipe)
1 tablespoon of rice vinegar
280g of rice (2 cups) —[ 70g for one (1/2 cup) ]
white sesame seeds — as many as you want
4 quail eggs & 4 toothpicks
1 pea/edamame (for the garnish on the ‘guy’)
2 D-shaped processed fish cake things (the pink thing the ‘girl’ has)
1-2 sheets of cooked seaweed
1 egg, 1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoon sugar, tiny bit of salt
1: Make 2 usuyaki tamago and cut in half to make 4 semicircles. (they used a 24cm frying pan — or around 10 inches, and they say that 27cm (10.5in) makes better cuts)
2: Cut the inari bags. cut the part above the opening and the right side to make long rectangles.
3: prepare sushi rice. (cook rice & add some rice vinegar, use dashi instead of rice water if you have it) Mix with white sesame seeds. Split into 4 parts and slowly make circles out of each one.
3: wrap the cut inari bag around the rice and place the quail egg on using a toothpick.
4: Wrap the half cut egg sheets around. Then cut the hair from seaweed and place ontop of quail egg. For the garnish, use the fish cakes for the girls (it look like they cut it a little to make it look like a fan) and for the guys cut the cooked pea peel in half and use that.
