Perfect Sushi Rice
Yes, it was too much vinegar and sugar, but I adjusted it to my taste without adding all of it. Note: Glutinous white rice is NOT the same as sushi rice. The former is more opaque (almost cream coloured) and longer (or bigger grained) while the latter is more translucent white and shorter (or smaller grained).

Chicken Curry Puffs
To keep pastry ends together, dip a finger in water and smear it on the edge and press the two pastry layers together. If you are doing a long roll, fold over one edge onto the filling, apply a bit of water and fold the other edge over the dampened edge. Then pierce gently, diagonally with fork tines to seal. After baking, immediately cut long roll into serving sizes. However, leaving one end slightly open will help the built-up steam escape out of the puff.

Indian Dahl with Spinach
You do need to cook gently all the spices in oil first - to make it easier on sensitive tummies. Then add the onions, etc. This method also makes the end result more aromatic. Certainly dahl spinach soup is soul warming on a cold day. :)
