sushi

Ingredients
4 cups dry sushi rice (or any short grain, sticky rice)
200 ml rice vinegar
5 tbsp sugar
1-2 tbsp salt
1 package (ten sheets) nori (a type of seaweed)
vegetables of your choice: cucumbers, carrots, cooked shitake mushroom
Eggs ~ beaten and fry thinly like pancakes
optional: soy sauce substitute, wasabi (japanese horseradish)
3 1/2 cups water

Method

1) Combine rice with 31/2 cups water and bring to a boil.
2) Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes or until water is absorbed.
3) Let cool for at least 10 minutes. We cooked in a rice cooker and we just used the normal rice and not the special rice for sushi)
4) In a non reactive bowl, combine the vinegar, sugar, and salt.
5) Mix until the sugar and salt are dissolved.
6) Drizzle over the rice and gently mix. (You may have to experiment with the amount of vinegar, sugar, and salt that you like.)
7) Slice the vegetables in long thin strips.
8)Now you are ready to roll! If you want to, you can use a bamboo mat (available at your local asian grocery) to help you roll,
9) Lay a sheet of nori out on a large plate or cutting board on top of the bamboo mat
10) Then spread on about 1 1/2 cups rice, pressing firmly until the rice is evenly distributed across the sheet. Leave the edge farthest from you uncovered.
11) Lay the vegetables in a line from left to right across the center of the rice.
12) Now starting with the edge nearest to you, roll up and over enclosing the vegetables. Wetting the far edge helps seal the roll. You should end up with a long roll, with the nori on the outside and the rice and vegetables in the middle.
13) Repeat with the remaining nine sheets.
14) To serve, slice crosswise into about eight pieces.
