Wash the rice thoroughly before cooking to remove starch and make it sticky
After cooking the rice add sushi vinegar to season

Spread the rice evenly across the nori seaweed paper
Place the shiny side of the nori down and spread rice on the rough side
Next flip the roll over and place on top of makisu bamboo mat
Begin evenly placing ingredients on to the center of the nori
Leave room on each end so everything rolls properly
Use makisu mat to roll applying even pressure
Begin topping the roll alternating between your toppings
Cover roll in parchment paper use makisu to secure toppings
Using a sharp knife, cut the sushi into even pieces
After cutting use makisu mat to apply pressure again
Remove the parchment paper
Place roll on serving plate and get ready to add toppings
Drizzle eel sauce across the top of the roll
