Ingredients for Sushi Rice
While the rice is still warm add the following ingredients. (This will make 2 rolls, approximately 24 Sushi pieces.)
- 2 cups Cooked Sushi Rice
- 2 tablespoons Rice Vinegar (or 3-4 tablespoons Sushi Vinegar)
- 1 tablespoons Sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
For making Sushi
- 2 Nori (roasted seaweed sheets)
After mixing ingredients let the rice mixture cool, before using the Sushezi.
For the Karaage Chicken
- 2 Chicken Thigh Fillets quartered
- 125g Hot'n' Spicy flour mix (eg. 'Diamond Hot 'n Spicy Coat N Cook)
- 2 cups Oil for deep frying
Karaage Chicken Instructions
Coat chicken thigh pieces in Coat ‘n Cook. Make sure each piece is completely covered with the spicy crumb.
Heat the oil to medium hot (170°C) in a heavy set pan or wok. Using tongs add a handful of chicken pieces to the oil, deep fry until crispy and cooked through (about 5 minutes). Carefully remove and lay on a paper towel lined rack. Repeat with the rest of the pieces.
Follow the Instructions for Making Sushi with the Sushezi.
IMPORTANT WHEN PACKING RICE MIXTURE
It is important to use exactly half a cup of the rice mixture per side when packing the two halves. Too much rice will cause the mixture to overflow and too little rice will result in a loose sushi roll. Do not overfill the centre channel with too much filling.
