Totoro Onigiri

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: N/A

cooked white Japanese rice
ground black sesame seeds
Shio-Kombu (salted kelp) *optional
Karaage (Japanese Fried Chicken) *optional
spaghetti pasta
sliced American cheese
Nori sheet

1. Put steamed rice in a bowl. Then mix ground black sesame seeds until you reach the desired Totoro color.
2. Place the rice in plastic wrap so that the rice won't stick on your hands.
3. Make a hole in the center of the rice and place the filling (Shio-Kombu & Karaage). *optional
4. Form the rice into a triangle by pressing lightly with your palms.
5. Make Totoro's ears using a small amount of rice.
6. Attach Totoro's ears with bits of spaghetti pasta. (pasta will absorb moisture from rice and gets soft after few hours, so you can eat it by lunchtime!)
7. Cut sliced cheese with a toothpick to make Totoro's face parts and body parts. Cut Nori sheet with scissors or use Nori punch to make Totoro's face parts and body parts. Attach them on Onigiri.
