Okaka Onigiri

User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Okaka onigiri are dried bonito flakes (okaka, or katsuobushi) flavored rice balls. This okaka filling is seasoned with soy sauce.

Yield: 1 serving


  • A bowl of warm steamed Japanese rice
  • 1/4 cup katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes)
  • 1 tsp soy sauce


Put katsuobushi in a medium bowl. Season with soy sauce. Put steamed rice in the bowl and mix well with katsuobushi. Wet your hands in water so that the rice won't stick. Place half of the rice on your hands. Form the rice into a round or a triangle, by pressing lightly with your both palms. Make two rice balls.
