I want to make some today, I'll run to the grocery store later to get the ingredients. I know I can look up the recipes online but I also need help and tips from people who have made it already.
I do not want to mess up 😅

Justonecookbook. com is a good resource for sushi rice recipe and techniques. And for other good food recipes.
General tips though - sushi rice is a bit less cooked through than regular rice.
You can alter the amount of sugar/mirin added (I sub mirin with apple cider vinegar sometimes)
Let the rice cool til warmish. Too hot rice causes the nori to break apart at times and cold rice is difficult to spread and doesn't stick to the nori well and the nori remains hard and difficult to roll. Warmish rice makes it just soft enough to roll and cut.
Dont get greedy with the ingredients. Lay them neatly on one side, and not too much. Then roll tightly squeezing the bamboo rolling thing periodically to squish everything together. Kinda like play dough.
When you cut, oil the knife with a tiny bit of olive oil or something. With out it, rice will stick to your knife and make it hard to cut.
If your knife isn't sharp enough (and for some reason you can't sharpen it) make little cuts with the tip of the knife at sushi sized intervals and then cut through the nick you made. It makes it easier. So does sharpening your knife.
