Vinegar for the sushi
3 tbsp* vinegar
2 tbsp* sugar
2 tsp salt
Boil all 3 ingredients over small fire for sugar to be dissolved. Leave to cool.
* The tbsp here refers to the Chinese soup spoon.
Rice for the sushi
3 small cups of California or Calrose rice (450g)
3 or 3.5 cups of water
Wash rice. Use 3 or 3.5 cups of water (the same cup you use to measure the rice) to soak the rice for 30 minutes. (I soak the rice in my rice cooker so that after 30 minutes I can straight away cook it in the rice cooker.)
After rice is cooked, leave it in the rice cooker for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, pour rice into a big mixing bowl and pour the cooled vinegar into the rice. While fanning the rice with one hand, mix the rice with vinegar well. Leave to cool down and you can use it to make sushi.
(Tip: I stand in front of my fan with the fan facing the rice while mixing the vinegar into the hot rice.)
