Delicious Home Made Sushi

SushiAfter tasting the delicious sushi which was given by my student, I began to like to eat sushi. I requested my wife to make the sushi for me. She got a copy of the recipe from the student's mother and enquired her about the making of the hand-rolled sushi.

Sushi Ingredients
Crab Filament, Carrot, Japanese Cucumber & Fried Egg
The above photos are the ingredients of making the hand-rolled sushi. These ingredients are available at the food department of the Jaya Jusco Supermarket.
Remember to buy the rice and the vinegar which are imported from Japan or South Korea. Otherwise the taste of the sushi wouldn't be so nice. Don't use the seaweed which is other than green in colour for rolling the sushi.
In case you dislike the ingredients that I suggested, you can replace them with your favorite ingredients that suit your taste.

Evenly sprinkle 1/2 cup of the vinegar on the cooked rice (3 cups of rice + 6 cups of water). Stir the mixture thoroughly and let it cool. Spread the cooked rice on the seaweed and place the ingredients on top of the cooked rice as shown in the photo.
When it's ready, start to roll the sushi into a cylinder shape. Slice the sushi roll to small pieces and serve with wasabi and sushi sauces.

    I should learn how to wrap that Sushi... kind of amazing stuff to practice. Thanks for sharing !!

  12. A korean friend taught me the way to roll the kimbap. it's neither easy nor difficult,and the mat is really helping. I'm getting hungry. hmm..

  13. That totally looks like kimbap, but technically, if the rice is seasoned, it's actually sushi, although the ingredients you've used closely resemble kimbap. I'm a Taiwanese-American that grew up in a family with a lot of Japanese influences and traditions, particularly in cooking. And growing up in Los Angeles, I know my Korean food. So trust me, that is sushi because you've seasoned the rice and used short grain rice, but actually, the ingredients and the way they were prepared, cut and rolled is kimbap style. Looks tasty, anyhow!
