  3. Repeat this step until the water runs clear
  4. Place the rice and 1/2 cup water into a small pot
  5. Bring to a boil

  7. When the 15 minutes are up, remove from the heat and let it sit, covered, for another 10 minutes
  8. Meanwhile, chop your raw tuna and add it to a small bowl
  9. Stir in the Greek yogurt, soy sauce, and Sriracha until everything is evenly combined
  10. For the topping, stir together 3 teaspoons Greek yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon Sriracha
  11. When the rice is done, transfer it to a bowl and set aside
  12. Add the rice vinegar, sugar, and kosher salt into a small bowl and microwave for 45 seconds
  13. Add this mixture to your rice and stir until everything is evenly combined
  14. Place your rice in the freezer until it is cooled to room temperature
  15. Wrap your bamboo mat three times around with saran wrap so the rice doesn’t stick
  16. Place a sheet of Nori down on the bamboo mat and scoop 3/4 cup of rice on top of it
  17. Wet your hands with water and press out the rice so it forms an even layer over the Nori
  18. Carefully flip it over so the rice is against the bamboo mat and the Nori is facing up
  19. Spoon the spicy tuna along the bottom edge of the Nori evenly
  20. Roll the sushi using the bamboo mat (if you search YouTube for a video of this, it is super easy to understand. It is easier than it looks!)
  21. Sprinkle the black sesame seeds on top of the sushi, and cut the roll into roughly one inch pieces
  22. Drizzle the spicy yogurt sauce on top
