Tried this during vacation and it was the best sushi rice I have turned out. The texture was good, nice and sticky, and it clung to the nori perfectly. I didn't have the dashi onhand but can't wait until I try it at home and can use dashi. I adjusted the recipe to use 1 1/2 cups of rice and it still worked out nice. I didn't count the nori sheets I used but I think it was around 5 - 8.
