Makkuro Kurosuke (Soot Sprites) Onigiri For Your Family Charaben

Please give these a try when you go on a family picnic.

Ingredients: 4 small servings

Cooked white rice
about 650 g
Nori (dried seaweed sheet)
as needed
Sliced cheese
2 slices
Your favorite rice seasonings
umeboshi pickled plum, salmon, konbu seaweed, anything ♪

Steps

1. Prepare bite-sized round onigiri for kids, and normal-sized round onigiri for adults with your preferred seasonings.
2. Wrap with nori seaweed, and cover with plastic wrap so that the nori seaweed will stick to the onigiri. Cut out circles from the cheese. Make eyes with nori seaweed, and you're done.
3. I poked out the cheese using a straw for the eyes! This is useful if you don't have a nori punch.

Story Behind this Recipe

Since soot sprite onigiri are easy to prepare, I tried making some for adults as well.
