YUCa’s Tip :

1. Prepare either warm or hot Japanese rice when making onigiri.
2. Okaka & Cheese Grilled Onigiri : Crush the dried bonito flakes into small pieces. Use 2 to 3 types of cheese to add more rich flavor.
3. Miso & Shiso Grilled Onigiri : To avoid burning the miso sauce, turn over the onigiri quickly!
