This is my favourite hot day dish, that I often prepare for my family on a very hot day and I don’t want to cook anything. My kitchen has a large window that is facing west, and the kitchen can get extremely hot. While it is still not too hot, I prepare Sushi Rice and cook Eggs. In the evening, all I have to do is arranging ingredients on the Sushi Rice. I can’t handle the heat, but I can handle this.


1 Serving *OR any number of servings


1 serving (*about 240g) Cooked Short Grain Rice *must be hot
