While doing grocery shopping today, dear hubby suddenly had craving for Japanese food. He wanted some tempura and unagi w/rice. Children however asked for sushi. So I bought some of the ingredients needed for tonight's dinner. Actually I had wanted to make a sukiyaki too but then I don't think we can finish all the food so I decided against making the sukiyaki.
I did some simple crabstick sushi for the boys which I had no chance of taking any picture of them. All in their stomach as soon as it was rolled and cut. I also did some california rolls and fotomaki. In the end, we did not touch it as we were too full from our tempura dinner. Keeping the sushi for lunch tomorrow.
I also tried making some sushi using cucumber to wrap around the rice.
See, the untouched sushi that is going to be hubby and my lunch tomorrow.
I used some prawns fried in batter and did a prawn tempura rice for myself. Spooned some tempura dipping sauce onto the rice before sprinkling some salt and 7-flavour chilli powder onto it.
Hubby's unagi rice.
I find this picture rather funny. My elder boy volunteered to take a picture of the tempura for me while I was busy in the kitchen. Wonder why he wanted to place the two prawns at the two corners. Hmmmmm ...
