I heart Japanese Cuisine.
it never came across my mind that one day i'll fancy sushi more than anything else... i found it very authentic and mysterious, yet our task to dig in the secret behind sushi....... ya, as everybody knows Sushi is one of the first things that would pop into anyone’s mind when Japan is mentioned. It is, after all, one of the best- and most-presented Japanese dishes with all the different colors and ingredients that go into making it.
i tried to do uramaki today, differ from the normal rolls because the rice stay outside while the nori/seaweed inside... i bet u all must heard bout California Rolls, and i really did it today... the truth is i've been trying to roll my uramaki since last year but each time the end result really frustrating... but today after spending some time learning from youtube, i felt so happy with my california rolls...
these are the list types of sushi i'd been making today:
1/ Tekka Maki ( Tuna Rolls)
2/ Cucumber Rolls
3/ Crab Rolls
4/ California Rolls
5/ Cucumber-Crab Rolls
6/ Temaki – These are cone-shaped seaweed rolls also called a hand roll
7/ Salmon Nigiri Sushi
Ingredients for Your Rolls
You’ll need some equipment if you’re making sushi for the first time. If finding the supplies and ingredients at your nearest supermarket is difficult, try looking in an Asian or Japanese food store in the area.
Before anything, find yourself a sushi roll mat. They’re made of thin bamboo sticks that are bound together into a flexible mat. Also, prepare a sushi knife (but any good, sharp knife in the kitchen works, too), a cutting board, a wood spoon, and some plastic wrap.
For the ingredients for California rolls, you need some sticky rice prepared in the style for sushi (be particular about getting Japanese rice because it has the sticky consistency you need), a pack of nori wrapper (crisp, dark green squares of seaweed), some rice vinegar, a fairly big cucumber, a couple of avocados (or mangos, if you prefer them), crab sticks, tuna, and mayonnaise.
when these things are ready, only then u can start making your own sushi....
this is actually my 4th time making sushi and rolls.... and i find that making Sushi is actually very easy for the experts, but u must be really patient if u'r just a beginner. after all making sushi is everything bout fun and creative... That coupled with the fact that it is full of incredible nutrients, low in calories, and tastes delicious, there is no doubt that Sushi will become your next favorite food.
