      Im sure I could by trial and error figure out how to fill and roll the sticky rice, unless someone has some recipes for sushi rolls, california rolls, something with shrimp, salmon, and those little crispy salty fish eggs.
      Please share!

        • I dont think its that easy...I know how to make rice-I need to know what to add to it to make it sticky so I can roll sushi ingredients in it and it wont fall apart, and so it will taste right. Plain rice won’t do.

        • It has to be Sushi rice.  Need to visit a Japanese store.  You also need some rice vinegar, seaweeds and the bamboo mat.  

          I am still exploring.  I have a sushi cd and once I viewed it and practice that, I will let you know.

          I sat at Sushi bar many times.  It is my understanding that .you roll out the sushi mat
          .put a saran wrap around it
          .put your ingredients towards 1/3 of the mat
          .then roll

          A friend told me you have to use odd numbers of ingredients, like 3, 5, 7.

        • I can’t wait. We have a pinoy store a few blocks from me, I can get everything I need. I think I will start with something safe like cali rolls with shrimp, crab or salmon...and though I have seen the seaweed on the outside, I think I will try with it inside  the way I am used to eating it.

          So inexpensive to make, but terribly expensive to get at the restaurants. I will let you know how it turns out, and thank you so much for doing the sticky rice research for me!

        • CD—

          I did it! You have to really practice with the rolling a few times, but I did it and the sushi was a hit today, I even impressed myself and that is very hard to do—I think you should go ahead and try it! I found about a zillion recipes for the rice, and I used cucumber, avocado, and crab meat  for the filling, served it with soy and wasabi and ginger.

          They even took some home because we had leftover—and I can’t eat that much sushi—

        • oh yes, at the pinoy grocery store here, they cost about 80 cents! I maybe could have improvised without it, but I am glad I didn’t have to!

          Goddang it that sushi was good! It was better than the premade stuff at the grocery store deli but not quite as good as the best sushi restaurant I have been to—-so all around I am so glad to have learned to have made it-now I will make it all the time! It is so simple once you get the hang of it, and so much cheaper than the stuff that is already made!
