Kappa Maki

Prepared bento boxes for dinner one day. Made some kappa maki too. It wasn't very difficult. Need a wooden bamboo mat, roasted nori, sushi rice and a long thin slice of cucumber. Arrange as below and roll up tightly! Then cut into bite size pieces. Cucumber can be substituted or supplemented with frankfurters, carrots etc.

As for sushi rice, it's also very easy to prepare. Calrose short-grain rice can be purchased from hypermarts. Cook in rice cooker as per instructions. Once done, scoop out into a large wooden plate and add in sushi vinegar. Five portions of rice for one portion of vinegar. Then mix it together using a slicing motion. Finally, fan the rice to cool it down before using.
