Onigiri is a Japanese food that is loved by people all over the world. It’s a simple combination of rice and salt, but there are many variations of onigiri with different ingredients.
The origin of onigiri is unknown, but it is believed that it began as a method of preserving rice. In Japan, rice was a valuable commodity and was sometimes used as currency. In order to prevent the rice from rotting, it was wrapped in nori seaweed. This method of preservation allowed the rice to be preserved for a longer period of time.
Onigiri became a part of Japanese culture because it was a portable food. Onigiri was easy to carry and could be eaten without using cooking utensils. Therefore, rice balls were the best food for soldiers and travelers. Onigiri was also a popular food at festivals and other events.
Onigiri has evolved over time, and today there are many types of onigiri. Triangular rice balls are the most common, but there are also round and cylindrical rice balls. Onigiri can be made with different types of rice, including white rice, brown rice, and vinegared rice. There are various ingredients, but tuna, salmon, and pickled plums are common.
Today’s rice balls are very different from the rice balls of the past. The shape and size of rice balls have also changed. You can get it at convenience stores, supermarkets, and even on the Internet. Onigiri is no longer just a lump of rice.
