Inarizushi (Tofu-Bag Sushi)

I know that most of you love sushi, am I right? 😉 Sushi is the most popular Japanese food in the world, vinegared-cooked rice, combined or mixed with another ingredients such as vegetables, fish or meat. In Japan, people use special rice, which is "sushi rice" (short grain rice) to prepare sushi. But it's too expensive for me to buy sushi rice, so I just use Jasmine rice and it works well, so don't worry if you don't have sushi rice at home.

Inarizushi is one of many types of sushi. The vinegared-cooked rice is inserted into the tofu bags called Aburaage (deep fried tofu pouch). In most of Japanese restaurants, inarizushi contain only the rice, but I like to mix the rice with some vegetables or thinned tuna fillet.
