1. Wash the rice well in a saucepan.

Drain and rinse until the water runs clear.

2. For cooking, a tip: the volume of water must exceed that of the rice by half a phalanx.

Cook the rice.

3. Once the rice is cooked, pour in the white alcohol vinegar and mix with a little salt and a pinch of sugar. 

4. Crumble the tuna in a bowl and mix it well with the mayonnaise, to measure according to your taste.
