  4. Swirl the rice quickly, 3-4times, refill the water bowl while stirring.
  5. Rub the rice between your fingers as if to polish them, moving around the pan.
  6. Pour off the cloudy water.
  7. Rinse the rice 4-5 more times or until the water stays clear, then drain thoroughly.
  8. Add the 3 cups of water to the rice and let stand for 20-30 minutes before starting rice cooker.
  9. After the cooker stops, complete the steaming by leaving the rice in the cooker, unopened, for an additional 20-30 minutes.
  10. Empty the steamed rice into the damp bowl.
  11. Pour the vinegar mixture evenly over the rice.
  12. Stir the rice evenly until the vinegar is mixed evenly throughout, and the rice gains a polished appearance.
  13. Cover the rice with a cloth, letting it rest until it reaches skin temperature (37 oC).
  14. Mix 4 tablespoon water and tempura flour to a pancake consistency, to create a batter.
  15. Coat shrimp with all-purpose flour, then dip shrimp into tempura batter and coat evenly.
  16. Heat oil to medium-high heat and fry shrimp for 90 seconds or until beige in colour.
  17. Remove from oil and put to cool.
  18. Cover sushi bamboo mat in cling wrap.
  19. Place the nori on your cutting board, rough side up.
  20. Spread rice evenly from end to end over the nori
  21. Turn the rice and nori over, so that the rice is facing the cutting board.
  22. Place the 2 shrimp tails out, cucumbers and mayo in one straight line lengthways down the centre of the nori.
  23. Hold the two corners closest to you and try rolling over whilst tucking the ingredients under the lid, ending with the seam side down.
  24. Using your bamboo mat (that should be covered in cling film) drape the bamboo mat over the sushi roll forming into a tunnel shape, moving bamboo mat left to right and right to left, tucking in each side.
  25. Remove mat, cut into 8 pieces
  26. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
