Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place rice in medium bowl and cover with cool water. Swish rice vigorously with your hand, pour off water, and repeat until water runs clear (about 5 or 6 times). Using a colander, drain rice well, then put in a medium pot. Add the water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, 12 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit 10 minutes.

Step 2

In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, sugar, and salt. Cook over low heat, stirring, until sugar and salt dissolve. Remove from heat and let cool.

Step 3

Transfer the cooked rice to large glass bowl. Slowly pour the vinegar mixture over the rice and GENTLY fold together with a spatula. Let cool slightly before serving.

Step 4

If you plan to hold the rice for an hour or two, cover the bowl with a clean kitchen towel and let stand at room temperature. Do not refrigerate, because the rice will be hard and unappealing.
