OK, had a mediocre first attempt at sushi last night. Got the cal rose rice and it was tasty - but verging gummy and pasty. I cooked the rice in my rice cooker according to directions - but then realized that I may have used too much vinegar solution that I cut in at the end (which tasted fine to me but didn't yield the proper consistency). Would too much vinegar make it gummy?
I did wash it for about 5 minutes, drained it for 15, and then cooked it. I then emptied into a glass bowl and "cut" in the vinegar solution. I may have over "mixed".
Also, fanning the rice to cool it down was difficult for me.
