Ingredients (serve 2-3 as main dish)

2 cups (180ml cup comes with rice cookers) short/medium grain rice or sushi rice

2 tablespoons sake (or dry white wine)

Sushi Vinegar:
– 4 tablespoons rice vinegar / white vinegar
– 1 tablespoon sugar
– 1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons white sesame seeds (roasted)

1 small avocado

12-15 prawns

2 eggs


  1. Rinse rice and put in a rice cooker. Add sake/wine and water to the water level mark of the rice cooker. Switch on.
  2. Mix vinegar, sugar and salt to make sushi vinegar.
  3. When the rice is cooked, put the cooked rice on a shallow tray and sprinkle sushi vinegar while the rice is still hot.
  4. Mix sushi vinegar with rice and cool quickly using hand held fan. Mix sesame seeds.
  5. Meanwhile, prepare avocado, prawns and egg.
  6. Remove skin and stone of an avocado. Cut into small cubes.

  8. Beat eggs. Mix 1 teaspoon of sugar and a drop of soy sauce. Pour in a non-stick frying pan and place on medium heat to make scrambled eggs.
