Siba's tip...

Sushi rice is a great substitute to formal rice especially if you the rest of your meal is Asian inspired. This is a great companion to Asian beef fillet and calamari (squid) alongside greens and pickles.

  • 375 ml raw sushi rice

  1. Place the rice and salted water in a pot and bring to the boil over medium heat. Simmer over low heat, covered for 20 minutes until the rice is sticky to the touch, cooked and all the water has evaporated. Cool down until it can be handled, for 5 minutes.
