CLEAN EATING KITCHEN
Rinse Sushi rice gently in a mesh strainer placed in a bowl swirling the rice with your fingers. Repeat till water is clear; up to 7-8 times. Let rice drain well in a mesh strainer.
Prepare the Kombu by wiping carefully with a moist towel. Do not remove the white coating as this provides all the delicious flavor.
Add Rice to Instant Pot with water and one piece of the Kombu. Ensure all the rice is covered with water.
Once the cooking time is up, gently transfer rice to a non-metal bowl.
Place the other piece of Kombu in a saucepan and combine with the Rice Vinegar, Aji-Mirin, salt and sugar. Heat on medium-low heat until all ingredients come together. Do not boil. Set aside to cool.
