Caterpillar Sushi Rice 毛毛虫寿司饭团

When we were having our vacation in New Zealand, my little girl missed eating rice after days of munching on western food. Since sushi stores are easily available, we bought her sushi with teriyaki chicken as alternative and she was pretty satisfied.

Back at home now, I had a sudden inspiration of making sushi for the duo by merging it with the famous Malacca chicken rice balls. Never heard of this famous dish? Find out more about it here, you shall give it a try whenever you visit Malacca, the heritage state of Malaysia besides Penang. 

So here it is, the caterpillar sushi rice consist of honey glazed mushroom chicken fillet and sushi rice. Served with some omelet cooked by my little handsome and drops of pumpkin seeds for that spring feel.

My duo absolutely loved the "caterpillar" and couldn't wait to grab the rice balls when dinner was served. The plate was emptied within half an hour and they even asked for more chicken fillet, or as my girl called it, 肉肉.

Here's the serving for hub and I. Nothing fancy, just simple handmade sushi rolls.

Sometimes it only takes a little twist in the food presentation to boost the little ones' appetite and inspiration.

For the sushi recipe, refer here:

For the honey glazed chicken fillet, refer the recipe here:

I made a little change by adding honey this time, just pour a small cup of diluted honey onto the chicken fillet and let the fillet shimmered for about 10 minutes before serving. The honey will be absorbed into the meat and give a nice aroma. 

• To avoid risk of chocking do supervise the little ones while eating and teach them to eat properly.
• To roll the sushi into rice balls without having the rice sticking all over your hands, just dab some water on your palms before you start working on the rice. It's that simple! *wink*

Atadaki masu! (Let's dine!)
