Whenever i run out of ideas for lunch, i’ll turn to one of my very awesome Furikake packets that i stock up faithfully whenever i’m in supermarkets or Daiso –> costs just $2 from here! Ssssshhh.. don’t tell too many people about this okie?!
How is my Inari Sushi different than the usual ones? One thing for sure, it’s got more calories in each and every one of it and that could only mean one thing – YUMMIER! Hee! But you know what? It’s worth it! (not that it’s that much more calories.. cos it’s Japanese food that we’re talking about ya know.. *wink*)
For Sushi Rice
- 2 cups Japanese rice
- 2 1/4 cups water
- 3-4 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 0.5 tsp salt
1. Put the rice in a large bowl and wash it with cold water. Repeat washing until the water becomes almost clear. Place the rice in rice cooker and add water. Start the cooker.
2. Prepare sushi vinegar (sushi-zu) by mixing rice vinegar, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Pour the mixture into the rice and mix well. Let it steam for 10 minutes.
* This is where i’ll mix in the Furikake, a tablespoon by tablespoon till i think it’s enough.
What you need to make Maameemoomoo’s Not-Your-Usual-Inari-Sushi
Furikake + Deep Fried Shrimps + Sushi Rice =
And then, you take the above and add the seasoned fried beancurd skin + fried seaweed, and you’ll get your extremely satisfying but light and easy lunch!
So, there you go. One of my best lunches, lovingly made at home, by the children, for the children. Errrr yeah, the boys have to make these themselves. I’d taught them how. :)
Sharing part of my reads – “Once your child is capable of doing something, congratulate yourself on the job well done and move on“. If i don’t practice this, seriously, i’d probably be in a mental hospital right now. Like seriously serious. 3 young very active and cheeky boys and just one pair of (my) hands.. well, i don’t think i need to tell you, Go figure, eh? *smile*
