  • 2 cups cooked sushi rice (short-grain rice)

  • 1 tbsp Zindrew's garlic chili oil (OG or X Batch, depending on your spice preference)

  • 1/4 cup sushi vinegar

  • 1/4 cup furikake seasoning

  • Cooked chicken, shredded or diced (as much as desired for filling)

  • Zindrew's garlic chili oil for serving

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Rice: In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked sushi rice with 1 tablespoon of Zindrew's garlic chili oil, sushi vinegar, and furikake seasoning. Gently mix everything together, ensuring the rice is evenly coated with the seasoning and oil.
  2. Mold the Rice Balls: Using a rice ball mold, fill half of the mold with the seasoned rice. Press down gently to compress the rice. Create a small indent in the center and add a spoonful of cooked chicken as the filling. Top with more seasoned rice, filling the mold to the brim.
  3. Compress: Place the top part of the mold and press down firmly to compress the rice and chicken, forming a compact rice ball.
  4. Air Fry: Preheat your air fryer to 390°F (200°C). Place the rice balls in the air fryer basket and cook for 5 minutes, or until the outside is crispy and golden brown.
  5. Serve: Remove the rice balls from the air fryer and let them cool slightly. Drizzle with more Zindrew's garlic chili oil for an extra kick of flavor. Serve warm and enjoy!
