  • Ready to serve
  • Cut the onigirazu with a sharp knife. Run the knife in cold water before cutting so that the cross-section will be clean. If you plan to make ahead of time, wrap the onigirazu with kitchen towel and keep it in the chiller overnight. The towel will prevent the rice from getting hard from the cold air.
