Set scales. Weigh rice into TM basket. Pour rice into large bowl and fill with water. Swish with hand until water is cloudy. Strain through basket. Repeat two more times until water is mostly clear. Return rice in basket to TM, add water. Cook for 17 minutes, varoma temperature, speed four. When finished, remove basket of rice to Thermoserver and cover with foil to steam for at least fifteen minutes. Empty rice into Thermoserver and fluff gently to separate. Cover with a clean tea towel or doubled paper towels and Thermoserver lid to keep warm.
Clean and dry bowl. Place ginger and spring onion in bowl, chop 3 seconds speed 7. Squeeze mushrooms dry, trim stems and add to bowl. Use turbo bursts to coarsely chop. Add oil, cook 2 minutes, varoma temperature, speed 2. Add chicken, cook 5 minutes, varoma temperature, speed 2, MC off. Add sugar, salt and soy sauce, cook for 2 more minutes, varoma temperature, speed 2, MC off. If there is still moisture in the bowl, cook a little longer to boil it off. Use the filling to fill onigiri rice balls.
Line a tea cup with a large doubled sheet of cling film. Rub the inside of film lightly with moistened hands and dust lightly with salt. Spoon rice into cup to 2/3 full press rice down with spoon and open up a hole in the centre. Place a spoonful of filling in hole, gather up edges of cling film and pull together tightly. Twist cling film while squeezing the rice to make a compact rice ball. Flatten and form into a triangle shape with cupped hands. Unwrap rice ball and fasten a nori belt around it. Wrap again to keep the rice from drying out if you will be eating it later.
