Stuffed Onigiri Tutorial by Eruda-and-Freya Stuffed Onigiri Tutorial by Eruda-and-Freya
This probably isn't art, but since there's a category for this here I'll upload it.

I noticed that the onigiri tutorials here on DA don't cover stuffed onigiri, hand molding and don't have many photos in them I just had the sudden notion to make a tutorial.

Since I made these for lunch anyway it was just a matter of snapping a couple of photos while I worked. Putting it all together actually took three times longer than making the onigiri. (^~^||) hehe.

Please upload any photos of onigiri you make with this tutorial and send me a PM with a link to it!

I'm going to make this when I get home. I love rice but I read a lot of manga and rice balls always interested me... I'm assuming Onigiri is the real name for it? Either way your tutorial is easy to follow and I want some flippn Onigiri now!

I love that you use the plastic wrapping when you mold them :O I've always used my bare hands, but I feel that they get kind of uneven...
I usually fill mine with seasoned salmon, and I always season my rice while cooking :)

thanks for the motivation to make pretty shapes, that heart was awsome <3

AWESOME! I just need nori and rice... maybe I could get my sister to eat this, she loves that canned tuna with mayo. I'm not a big fan of it, but it's not to bad. MUST TRY. I'm looking at cooking tutorials... not good when your hungry...

Oh wow thanks! I shall have to do this soon. :D I have a question though! What other kinds of food can you put in onigiri? I would like to make some for my little brother, but he's a vegetarian, so I was wondering if you had any suggestions?
Eruda-and-Freya Featured By Owner Jul 8, 2009
You can use cole slaw, only if you drain it pretty thoroughly. Basically any filling that isn't too oily or greasy should work.
-Fried Tofu
-Umeboshi (sour pickled plums)
-pickled Daikon (that crunchy yellow stuff you get in sushi)

Try to make sure it's very strongly flavored.

Thank you soooo much! I never even thought of coleslaw. My little brother will be quite happy with those suggestions. Now I just need to do a good job with making the onigiri, but with your tutorial it should be easy to do :D
