Onigiri Shaper Case

Onigiri are such an easy and economical snack to carry, and these cases will not only help you make perfect triangular onigiri, they'll also keep your onigiri in perfect shape while in your bag!  

These Onigiri Mold Cases create onigiri 7.5cm tall and 2.5~3cm thick.
  1. Place a square of plastic wrap over the lower half of the onigiri case, and press into corners.
  2. Using a rice paddle or spoon, press rice onto the wrap to fill the case, piling the rice higher than the top. 
  3. Close the plastic wrap over the rice, and press down on the wrap with your hands to flatten the top, creating a perfect triangular onigiri.  You're done!  Put the lid on.
Easy Optional Variations:
  • NORI:  If you like, place 1/3 of a sheet of nori in the case, outside the plastic wrap.  When you open the onigiri to eat it, transfer the onigiri from the plastic wrap onto the crisp fresh nori.
  • CENTRE FILLINGS:  It's easy to put a centre filling in your onigiri with this mold - eg Umeboshi, Cooked salted salmon etc.  At step 2, half-fill the case with rice, place the centre filling in, then cover it with more rice.
  • FURIKAKE COATING:  After step 3, open the plastic wrap, sprinkle on furikake and close the wrap.
