Use the bowl that was used when washing to soak rice in the water. ・ You can combine various ingredients as you like. ・ When wrapping with Nori, the rough side is inside and the smooth side is outside. ・ Please make the size of the rice ball to your liking: large for lunch, and small like a few bites, it is ideal for fancy stylish finger food for party and potluck.
