A couple of months ago I bought a rice cooker to make rice for sushi. All the ingredients we found (well, my wife found) at the supermarket after a couple tries: To make cucumber and crab rolls for a first time we bought 2 lb. white rice 1.2 oz toasted seaweed wraps 2 long cucumber 8 oz. cooked crab meat and condiments: 3.7 oz. toasted sesame seeds 12 oz. pickled ginger 1 oz. wasabi 10 oz. low sodium soy sauce We estimated about 25 dollars total food cost, and the two of us have been snacking on rice rolls for 5 days now. There are a few tricks like handling the rice with damp hands or it won’t stick to your fingers, and use your sharpest knife and a slow hand to cut the through the seaweed wrapper. But I managed to make some acceptable rolls by the third try without a rolling mat which we failed to find at the supermarket.
