Rice Based Food Art - Penguin Goes Fishing Onigiri Served In Homemade Japanese Curry 小企鹅钓鱼咖喱饭团. This little penguin is handcrafted rice ball wrapped with seaweed, details are done with 2 types of cheese and some finely trimmed seaweed.
Some quick notes to show how I made this cute penguin fishing onigiri:
1. Prepare homemade Japanese curry. I have an easy recipe to cook Japanese curry from scratch. This is the recipe I have been using for years, my kid-favourite curry. Get full recipe: <<Click here for Homemade Japanese Curry Recipe >>
2. Place some cooked rice on a sheet of cling wrap, wrap up and mould into rice ball. Trim seaweed as shown in the picture below.
3. Remove the cling wrap, place the rice ball onto the seaweed, wrap up. Trim seaweed with a pair of small scissors or seaweed cutter (if available). Add details using cheese and seaweed and assemble, as shown in the picture below.
If you do not have cheese at home, you can use seaweed to make the facial details as follow:
