I saw this blog with all my favourite sushi recipes. Oh my, I so wanna sink my teeth into them. I tell myself, I should attempt again. Try and never give up!!
I finally couldn't wait, I decided to make them for dinner. And in case I fail, I prepare Udon too. For emergency purposes, I can still serve just Udon soup with Prawn Tempura. I decided to be lazy, I bought frozen tempura, frozen oyster coat with cornflour for the sides. I used some Tempuras for the Dragon roll. Made some California rolls as well.
I refer to the recipe here for making the sushi rice. I finally succeed, and I reduce the vinegar slightly. I didn't pour the whole amount of vinegar mixture, I used about 2/3 of it. I started wrapping and wrapping and wrapping once all the preparation work is done. Guess what? I spent 2 hours on this meal today. It is 3X the amount of time I spent to cook 三菜一汤 lo. Phew. Sweat lo..
Luckily today I got positive feedbacks. Just that I need to improve on my wrapping, it seems a bit too big. And I can't keep my avocado slices on the top of sushi and tend to drop when we take with chopsticks. Nevertheless, I had fun, had a wonderful dinner and I shall attempt again soon.
Dragon Roll Sushi (reference from Justonecookbook)
Sushi Rice, about 3 cups. Refer to here
1/2 Cucumber, sliced into strips
4 Nori sheets
8 Prawn Tempura

Notes: I used frozen Tempuras so I just deep fried and cool them. Cut ingredients.
