Rinse the sushi rice in a sieve under cold running water for 30 secs (use your hands to really wash the grains!), then leave to drain fully
Add the drained rice with 200ml [400ml] cold water and a generous pinch of salt to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat
Tip: Don't let the water fully boil as this will make the rice stick to the pot!
Once boiling, reduce the heat to low until very gently bubbling and cook, covered, for 15 min
After 15 min, remove the pot from the heat and keep covered for a further 10 min before serving
Tip: Don't peek! Keep the lid on the whole time to get fluffy and sticky rice!
Whilst the sushi rice is cooking
Peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat
Once hot, add the pork mince and cook for 3-4 min or until browned all over, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go
Add the edamame beans to a small bowl and microwave for 1 min, or until hot and cooked with a bite
Once done, drain the edamame beans and add them to a bowl with the toasted sesame oil – these are your sesame edamame beans
Once the pork is browned, add the chopped ginger, mirin, soy sauce, Chinese rice wine with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] sugar to the pan
Cook for 4-5 min further or until fragrant and cooked through - this is your fragrant pork
Heat a pot with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat
Once hot, crack the eggs into the pot and cook for 1-2 min, mixing them vigorously, until firm and scrambled
Tip: Try scrambling your eggs with chopsticks if you have some!
Arrange the sushi rice, fragrant pork, sesame edamame beans and scrambled egg in bowls
Sprinkle the shichimi togarashi all over (can't handle the heat? Go easy!)
