Onigiri Onigiri are the standard Japanese rice balls. They generally come with a filling, more often than not fish. They are very common among the Japanese and are oftentimes found inside students' bento boxes. Making your own onigiri is extremely easy. You simply require Japanese rice and make sure it is freshly-cooked. You also require some salt for flavoring and the nori seaweed that will serve as the covering or plaster of the ball of rice. The seaweed will hold the ball in place. Before shaping the rice into a ball, put an opening at the center. Fill this dent with your selection of stuffing. You could opt for salmon or pickles or what have you. After putting in the filling, you could start working the rice into a ball and wrapping it afterwards with the seaweed.
