Method

  1. Place rice in a sieve and wash thoroughly under cold water.
  2. Place rice in a saucepan, then add 2 ½ cups of cold water.
  3. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat, then cover with a lid and simmer for 12 minutes. Remove from heat and stand for 10 minutes with the lid on. Transfer to a baking dish and carefully stir through the sushi vinegar then allow to cool.
  4. Place a sheet of nori, shiny side down with the lines running horizontally, on a bamboo sushi mat.
  5. With clean wet hands, spread rice over the nori, leaving the near and far edges free of rice.
  6. Place fillings in a line across the rice near the close edge Using the bamboo mat as a guide, roll the sushi away from you to firmly enclose filling.
  7. Slice each roll into 8 to 10 thin slices.
  8. Repeat for remaining ingredients and serve with soy sauce for dipping.
