Whichever you prefer to call it. I’ve considered both choices. What do you like best?
I made this one when I was down by the Mexican border in a canvassing program in south Texas. I cheated, using some already-made sticky rice found in the refrigerator or freezer section at WalMart, but any sticky rice should do.
Onigiri (also known as rice ball) is a simple Japanese snack that also makes a decorative addition to bento lunches. I used to eat just left over sticky rice from our local Chinese restaurant in my bento lunches, but later, as I began to pack lunches in canvassing programs, I would use sticky rice that I purchased from the refrigerated food section at WalMart. Some day, I’d really like to try making sticky rice myself using just sushi, Jasmine, or similar rice.
