Japanese rice seasoning powder (furikake) is available at most supermarkets. There are many kinds of furikake, so choose your favourite and incorporate it into your onigiri. This is a colourful, nutritious and quick snack to prepare!



  1. Place cling wrap in a rice bowl and scoop one-eighth of the rice into the bowl. Pull out rice together with cling wrap and mould rice into your preferred shape.
  2. Pour furikake powder onto a flat dish. Remove cling wrap and roll rice balls over furikake powder to coat evenly. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
