What is sushi rice?
Sushi rice is typically a short-grain or medium-grain Japanese or California variety that has a higher starch content than longer grain varieties. Because of this, it is super important that you rinse the rice thoroughly before cooking.
The main difference between sushi rice and white rice is the texture. Sushi rice is much stickier than white rice, making it ideal for sushi. Sushi rice is also made from short-grain rice, whereas white rice is usually medium-grained or long-grained. Short-grain rice also has more starch in it than long-grain rice.
