Sushi

The word 'sushi' refers to the sour flavour of the vinegared rice. It is a staple rice dish of Japanese cuisine and it is served cold. It consists of cooked rice flavoured with vinegar and a variety of vegetables, egg or raw sea food. Japonica or Indica rice is used to make sushi. It is rich in starch which makes it very sticky. It can be easily moulded to make sushi or eaten by chopsticks.
