Mix well by cutting into the rice, so that the rice and vinegar are blended together. Your vinegared rice is now ready.

In order to get rid of the moisture of the vinegared rice, it is a good idea to leave the rice spread out in a bowl, until it cools down.

Change the amount of sushi vinegar used depending on the amount of rice being prepared.
