How do you do it.
I must feed my addiction but the last time I "attempted" to make them they looked nothing like the ones I buy.
So if you would be kind enough to give me a guide including the rice I would appreciate it.

I made it once following a recipe and it turned out perfectly. I think the trick with the rice is to put rice wine vinegar at the end and use proper sushi rice. And roll it as tight as you can.

Ours turn out fine, we can't have the rice wine vinegar. Just YouTube some tutorials. We make sure our rice is still nice a warm and use a bowl of water to clean fingers throughout. We use short bio dynamic rice, no need for sushi rice. My 2.5yr old has had it for breakfast and lunch the past 2wks!!! She's completely obsessed!!!!

It's very labour intensive but so worth the yummy reward at the end!
I've found the sushi rice the best. The cooking recipe is on the packet. Only thing I can't prevent is the rice sticking to my saucepan every single time. Small price to pay for sushi though

Are you using a sushi rolling mat , I find it easier to get tight rolls with one of these and if your cutting it into discs then make sure the knife is dipped in water and I find a serrated knife does the neatest cut. I use plenty of rice wine and sugar to make the rice sticky so it keeps its shape when being rolled too.

I make sushi once a week. I'm addicted! I made sushi for 80 guests at a friends wedding so I do it a lot.
1) buy a rice cooker. They are only ~ $20 and essential for perfect rice. 1 cup rice, 1.25 cup water. Follow instructions that comes with cooker.
2) use sushi rice (short grain rice) or worst case - medium grain rice only. Don't use long grain.
3) use sushi vinegar or rice vinegar after cooking
4) put seaweed shiny side down onto mat. put rice on with wet hands and push into seaweed, leave about few cm at end.
5) always cut with you sharpest knife and make sure it is wet.
