Sushi making session at Aunt's

My aunt called me up on Wednesday and requested for a sushi session at her house. My initial plan was to do it next week but when Princess heard about it, she wanted it right away the next day. So, after my morning at Mustafa's, we headed off to aunt's place after Princess got home from school, and prepared the ingredients we needed. There was an abundance of fillings and toppings for the rice, so much so that there wasn't enough rice for them.

The rice didn't turn out great yesterday as it's my first time trying that certain brand. I didn't know if I needed to add more water, or less. Thus, it resulted in a not too well-cooked rice. It was cooked alright, but not fluffy enough.

We prepared thinly-sliced carrots, crabsticks, cheese sausages, Japanese cucumber sticks, tuna mayo, Unagi (eel), avocado, tamago (egg), otah (by the request of uncle), tuna flakes, sauteed mushrooms, ebiko (prawn roe) and Doraemon fishcakes.

Princess made her own bear sushi and the roll was done by me. She didn't want it to be cut up so I didn't manage to take a photo of the interior.

These were made using the sushi moulds from Daiso. I didn't think I liked them so much. I prefer the rolled ones.

For the very first time ever, I made California Rolls. I don't think I did it very well but these were yummy.

There were nicer rolls after this lot of photos but as it was very cumbersome and messy I didn't bother to take more photos.

Deb, for Japanese rice, normally I use 1 cup water to 1 cup of rice.

Thanks ladies. Thanks Tina, it's my first time having trouble with cooking Jap rice. I think it was a big quantity so it didn't turn out that well.

lcom - You can do it!

Miz Young - Thanks! :D

HK - Hahha, lots of liao and lots of leftover liao.
