Makes 2 cups.
- 2 rice cooker cups of rice, well rinsed
- cold water, just under the 2 cup line
- 4 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
Cook the rice in a rice cooker with the water.
Meanwhile, combine the remaining ingredients, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
In a large bowl, combine the rice with the vinegar mixture. Stir with a paddle or large spoon. You’ll want to fan the rice to cool it, but be gentle so you don’t mash the rice.
Once cooled, cover with a damp cloth so it doesn’t dry out while you are using it.
