Mix rice vinegar, sugar and salt in a small bowl until dissolved.
Transfer the cooked rice to a wide container and pour the vinegar around. Mix until evenly distributed and cover with a clean damp towel.
Use a peeler or madoline slicer to thinly slice the vegetables and soak in lightly salted water.
Divide the rice into 25-30g pieces and roughly roll. Keep under the damp tea towel to stop them from drying out.
