Homemade Sushi 🍣😋

by Andrea

Measure cups of Japanese rice 🍚 & pour into a pot. One cup gives you about 3-5 rolls. 🍣

Rinse the rice with water to get rid of excess starch.

Add 1.2 cups of water for each cup of rice. 💧

Start by cooking on high, until the water is boiling.

When it starts to bubble, turn down to medium heat & place a lid on the pot.

Make sure to occasionally check on the rice & mix it.

When the rice is done, add 1/2 cup of sushi seasoning (or rice vinegar + sugar) for every 3 cups of rice. 🍚

Mix the sushi seasoning into the rice well.

Cover the rice with a damp tea towel & place it in a cool place to rest. Do not put it in the fridge.

While waiting for the rice to cool down, slice up your sushi filling into strips.

Get your sushi mat & ingredients ready: you can wrap the sushi mat in cling film - this make it easier to clean.

Take out a piece of nori & place on the mat with the shiny side facing down & the rough side facing upwards.

Place your fillings on the side closest to you.

Roll with the bamboo mat tightly, making sure your roll is secure.

Cut your sushi up & serve! 🍣
