How to Make Inari Sushi

Inari sushi is rice in a fried tofu pocket. Typically, there's only rice in the pockets but here I've added a furikake topping.

This is about 2 tbsps of sushi rice.  You may pre-form the rice like so or take bits of rice at a time and fill the pockets.  Gently pushing the rice into the corners.  Do not overstuff.

Furikake is a common household condiment in Japan.  It's like salt and pepper.  There are many types out there.  I like the basic nori (seaweed) and sesame seed (plain and black) variety.
