Deliciously good and full with nutrition, onigiri is a great snack on the go that perfectly fit a busy person lifestyle. However, most of us thought making onigiri is impossible due to the reason that we believe it only can be done with special rice.

Afraid no my friend, you can use any rice, just make sure you add extra water on it, so it will be extra soft, and easy for you to shape your onigiri. Here is the recipe, we are using the brown rice from our sister company. Well, it just for the sake of looking posh and extra healthy.
