Recipe: Sushi

Really 'inspired' to make some sushi after my visit to Maki-San and so I did!:D 

Decided to healthified my sushi by replacing the rice with multigrain ones. 

Ingredients (makes 8 rolls):
2 cups mixture of sushi and multigrain rice
2 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup rice vinegar
Cheese, sliced 
Cucumber, sliced
ham, sliced
tomato, sliced

***you need not follow the ingredients that I've used, the beauty of homemade sushi is to customise your very own sushi!^^

1. Wash the rice several times until you get the clear water. Drain and add given amount of water and cook the rice in a rice cooker as per normal.
2. When the rice is ready, transfer into a large bowl, add the rice vinegar and toss thoroughly together with cutting motion. **Do not smash the rice. You may sprinkle sesame seeds if you like.  Cover the rice with damp towel and set aside to cool. Meanwhile prepare the filling.
3. Spread a sheet of seaweed over the bamboo sushi roll with the shining side facing the bamboo sushi roll.
 4. Spread about 3 tbsp of seasoned rice evenly over about 1/2 of seaweed (leaving 1" in the front and 2" at the back of rice for rolling later). 
5. Place the fillings one at a time over the rice toward you .
6. Lift up the front side of seaweed, carefully and quickly roll over the filling to cover them.
 7. At the end, wrap the entire seaweed roll with bamboo roll and gently squeeze to secure. 
8. Slice and ready to enjoy. 

Simple and definitely healthy.

Also made Naegmyeon (Korean cold noodles). I actually much prefer this to cold soba. ^^

Kimchi pumpkin salad. Of course it has to be me. :P

Actually it's not that difficult to prepare a simple and healthy homemade meal right?
