Today, we have food blogger Ksh Donny from Manipur show us how to make the famous Japanese Onigirazu (rice sandwich) and Korean Kimbap using black rice. A passionate foodie, Donny loves experimenting with food whenever she gets any free time. Through these recipes, she shares how different cultures come together for the love of rice – and how each have their own version of a rice snack (Now we know their names too!) So let’s find out what and how we are making 🙂
(Note from Donny “For the fillings, I have used both chicken sausage and tuna because these are my favorites, but you can use any filling you like; vegetarians can totally remove the meats – it’ll still be a healthy tasty treat.”)

- Now layer the egg white and yolk strips over the rice
- Similarly, layer the remaining filling ingredients over the egg strips
