How to cook
Prepare the Rice
  • Wash and cook the rice in the following portions:
  • White rice: 435g of rice, 435ml of water
  • Pastel blue rice: 70g of rice, 70ml of water, blue food colouring
  • Bright yellow rice: 70g of rice, 70ml of water, yellow food colouring
  • Add rice vinegar, sugar and salt to a pot and heat just until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool.
  • Once rice is cooked, add in cooled vinegar solution.
Prepare the Teriyaki Chicken
  • Fry sugar over medium heat for 8 minutes or until it becomes sticky and caramel-coloured. Glide chicken wings around pan until evenly coated. Add light soy sauce and water. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
  • Add mirin and turn the wings over, then continue to cook for 3 minutes or until the sauce becomes sticky.
Decorating
  • Steam the broccoli until soft.
  • Shape the Japanese rice against the image to form the control tower and clouds. Wrap some rice in cling film and compress it lightly to form a ball, then shape into desired elements.
  • To create ‘aeroplanes’, separate the drumlets, mid wings and wing tips. Use the mid wing as the body of the aeroplane, and the wing tips as the aeroplane wings. Use a toothpick to prop up the wing in the foreground. Cut out small cheese squares for windows.
  • Cut the Japanese seaweed according to the image to add details to the control tower.
  • Plate the ingredients to form the Changi Airport scene.
