Tri-Colored Rice Balls on a Stick for Dolls' Festival and Cherry Blossom Viewing

Tri-Colored Rice Balls on a Stick for Dolls' Festival and Cherry Blossom Viewing

Simply skewer 3 different flavored rice balls on a skewer, and you will have colorful and cute rice balls on a stick.

Ingredients: 6-8 skewers

Plain cooked rice
2 rice cooker cups' worth (360 ml uncooked)
1) Pink ingredient such as salmon flakes
as needed
2) Yellow ingredient such as noritama rice seasoning
as needed
3) Green ingredient such as wakame seaweed or green vegetable
as needed
Bamboo skewers
6-8

Steps

1. Divide the cooked rice into 3 portions. Mix the 1), 2), and 3) ingredients into each portion of rice to make different colored rice.
2. Form the rice into bite-sized balls. If the balls are too big, they will fall off the skewer.
3. Thread the rice balls onto the skewers. They may easily fall apart, so wrapping the rice balls in plastic wrap should help.
