Usually I'm a straight sashimi guy but lately have a hankering for some sushi. So I bought some short grain rice. Cooked it up in my rice cooker, prepped the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt, and added it all and mixed it up and tried to cool it. I'm okay with my measures because it tastes like I like it to. But kind of mushi. I mixed it up in a large plastic bowl. I don't have the wood sushi rice bowl. Is it that important? I looked on Amazon and they want $70 plus for a bowl. Holy cow! Any tips on my rice? I cooked it yesterday and put it in the fridge. Actually tastes ok tonight but I want to perfect it eventually. Thanks.
