Sushi Go Round 2!

After my first attempt on making some sushi, I had decided to make even more sushi. Uei Ying even gave me some ideas like using tuna as the ingredients. So, I went to buy tuna and salmon spreads (easier to handle, and I don't need to cook them too! Haha..) for my second attempt.

My working space.. Haha..

Well, this time, I set myself a task by promising Lynna my handmade sushi for her lunch in school. As usual, I prepared some sausages, the spreads, mayonnaise and of course the rice to make the sushi. It was pretty difficult this time because I had limited rice! My goodness.. So, I rolled up some and cut them up and got them to Lynna before her school ended.

The rolling process..

Wow la! The sushi roll!
Well, it was quite OK I suppose! I think I need more practice on my rolling skills because I tend to get the rice sticking to the mat which I shouldn't! Haha.. But, no worries.. I will make more again! Just wait for me.. Hehe..

Good on you. I almost forgot that I did say tuna might be a good ingredient. Oh ya, you can try chicken with mayonnaise. I had it before and it tastes really good.

You should spread the rice all over the nori sheet and use the bamboo mat to press and roll it into very round roll, it will then look very nice. You can buy broken rice to cook the shushi rice, add more water than usual. Happy 3rd round!!

I agree with Aunty Vera. spread the rice and compress it on the nori. wet your spoon or whatever you use to compress the rice to make it easier and less sticky. Spread rice equally over the whole nori, leaving about a cm at the end to seal up. Also, make sure you roll it tight at the beginning when you put the stuffing.
Good luck in your third attempt! :)

Uei Ying,
Good idea.. I can try that too.. Haha..

Thank you for the advice. I will try doing that next time. I didn't dare to spread the rice all over because I was worried that the nori sheet would tear off.. Haha..

Thank you for the advice too.
