On today's adventure, I'll show a simple tutorial on how to make onigiri by hand without the use of a fancy mold. Better yet, I'll show you how to make them without getting your hands wet or dirty! I promise! ^_^
Although this isn't the traditional way of making onigiri, I love this method because the bowl helps you achieve onigiri that are the same size and the plastic wrap keeps your hands clean. Fresh cooked rice is also super hot and the bowl helps minimize the time you spend handling these toasty balls of yummy-ness.

ONIGIRI FILLING SUGGESTIONS

What's your suggestion?
Onigiri are great for snacks or packed in a bento lunch. I often make them for my family and friends when we go to places like Anime Expo or an amusement park. Now that you, too, know how to make them, take them with you on your next big adventure! ^_^
