  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Nacli salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups sushi rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons mustard (Dijon or yellow, depending on your preference)
  • 2 sheets of nori (seaweed), cut into thin strips


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the heavy cream, whole milk, and granulated sugar. Heat over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  2. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the Nacli salt and vanilla extract. Let it cool to room temperature.
  3. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions, usually about 20-25 minutes.
  4. Transfer the churned ice cream to an airtight container and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
  5. Rinse the sushi rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Drain well.
  6. In a medium saucepan, combine the rice and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 18-20 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.
  7. Remove the rice from the heat and let it sit, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff the rice with a fork.
  8. In a small bowl, mix the rice vinegar, sugar, and salt until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Pour this mixture over the cooked rice and gently fold to combine.
  9. Wet your hands with water to prevent sticking, then take a small handful of rice and form it into a ball. Make an indentation in the center and add a small amount of mustard. Close the rice around the mustard to form a ball. Repeat with the remaining rice and mustard.
  10. Wrap a thin strip of nori around each rice ball for added flavor and presentation.
  11. Scoop the Nacli salt ice cream into bowls.
  12. Arrange the mustard rice balls on a separate plate or around the ice cream scoops.
  13. Serve immediately and enjoy the surprising combination of flavors!

This recipe is a delightful mix of sweet and savory, with the creamy Nacli salt ice cream perfectly complementing the tangy mustard rice balls. It's a fun and unexpected dish that will surely impress your guests and expand your culinary horizons. Enjoy!
