Step 1

Measure the rice and place it in a fine-holed colander or strainer. Rinse the rice under cold running water until the water runs clear.

Step 2

Drain well, and transfer to a heavy saucepan. Add 2 1/2 cups fresh cold water. Cover and soak for 30 minutes before turning on heat.

Step 3

Bring rice to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook until water is absorbed and rice is just tender, about 15 minutes.

Step 4

While rice cooks, combine the vinegar, sugar and salt in a small saucepan. Heat until sugar dissolved. Allow to cool.

Step 5

Remove the rice from heat and let stand, covered, for 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and toss with vinegar mixture and sesame seeds while still warm.

Step 6

Cover rice with a clean, damp towl and cool completely at room temperature. The rice should be used within several hours to maintain moisture and tenderness.
