Wash the rice
With running water for 1-2 minutes until there is no more starch coming out
of it. After you are done washing, take the rice and place it gently in a pot, add a little bit more water than rice to cover it.

Cooking the rice
The rice should be cooked on high heat at first, stir every minute or two, until the water boils.Then, lower the heat to minimum and cover the pot. After 10 min, check the water level – if all water is absorbed and the grains are big, then the rice is ready.

Taking out the rice
First, use only a wooden spoon to handle the cooked rice. A metal spoon will damage the rice, and can also react with the vinegar you will add later.

Seasoning the rice
Add rice vinegar to it right after you take it out of the pot. For 3 cups of cooked rice, use 1⁄2 cup of rice vinegar, 3 tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoons of salt. Mix together in small pot, on medium heat until all solids are mixed in. Pour mixture on rice and stir well.To cool and remove the moisture of the rice well, use a fan as you mix sushi rice.This will give sushi rice a shiny look.
