Which rice to use for sushi. Why use an Italian one
The Rice Tondo Balilla is a rice appreciated for its "stickiness", being a variety belonging to the group of those called common or original . By tasting the sushi you will surely have noticed how the rice is very compact: this is given, in addition to cooking and seasoning, the same organoleptic qualities of the grain that make it sticky. This characteristic is found in rice from the small grain of the subspecies Japonica, of which precisely is part of the common or round rice variety. The rice of the subspecies Japonica are cultivated in temperate climates and therefore are typical of both Japan and Italy.
Do not fall into the trap of choosing rice that seems suitable for preparing any "oriental" dish, that is those of the Indica subspecies (eg Basmati and Thai) that are famous for their long grain. Their organoleptic characteristics are completely different from a sushi rice and you can already notice its appearance: long grain against small and round grain.
