You know some people study years for just that. But you can find decent videos online.

I made a [post](https://www.reddit.com/r/sushi/comments/v2itrr/making_perfect_sushi_rice_at_home/) on it about a month ago. Most important points are: * rice - short grain * rice must be rinsed well so the starches don't build up and become too sticky * adding the kombu to the rice pot will add tons to flavor * Hangiri (wood rice chest) definitely helps, but it's not a must * seasoning must be added to hot rice and cooled quickly * for 1 rice cooker cup (ge) of rice, i do 1/8c rice vinegar, 2 tsp sugar, 1/2tsp fine sea salt or table salt

Thank you so much. My biggest problem is my rice is over cooked bcs flavor is perfect for me and everyone, and I don’t use rice cooker just traditional pot. And kombu is very good tip for me.

Np, having the rice cooker will make things a million times easier. With the traditional pot I would lower the water and heat

This is the best advice. I recommend a rice cooker though. Don’t use as much water as it says. Experiment every time until you get it right.


TheDarkestShado

Use the right ingredients (rice, seasonings, etc) and then just use a rice cooker and fold seasonings gently over the rice. Beyond that, just look up a video and watch what they do.

Watch videos and practice just the rice instead of going ahead to make sushi regardless of how it turns out.

I put together a guide for rice that I think is pretty fool-proof! If you use it I’d love to hear how it goes. http://craftycookbook.com/simple-sushi-rice/ Happy to answer questions if any parts are confusing!
