3. Boil the rice the Japanese way

Add 3 cups of water per 2 cups of rice into a saucepan, bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Add the rice vinegar, sugar and salt, stir, cover and cook for 20 minutes. Once it has simmered, leave the rice to steam for a further 10-15 minutes for authentic Japanese stickiness. Make sure you keep the lid on at all times.
