These temari rice balls are quite easy to make. These sushi balls were inspired by very pretty temari thread balls, https://www.pinterest.com/karencoombs/temari-balls/. The way to make temari sushi is pretty similar to how I usually mould the rice in cellophane wrap except that the ingredients for patterns are being wrapped at the same time with the rice to create the “stick on” effect. I picked simple designs for my first time making these cute balls. I made them into petit canapé sizes. Will definitely try to create more complicated ones soon. Maybe I could try making these with chicken rice, Tz’s favourite, just like the traditional Hainanese chicken rice balls but fancier. ⊂(≥ω≤)⊃
