The main ingredient in sushi rice is short-grain Japanese rice. This specific type of rice, often labeled as “sushi rice” in stores, has a higher starch content than other rice varieties. It’s this starchiness that gives sushi rice its characteristic sticky texture, perfect for rolling and shaping sushi. To season the rice, it is combined with rice vinegarsugar, and a touch of saltThe result is the essential base for creating delicious sushi rolls!  123.
