Here's the promised post on home-made sushi roll. I've tried making sushi rolls like years ago. And that was only one-time attempt. Last weekend was the second.

Japanese Rice, cooked, mix with a bit of japanese vinegar, and add a lil bit of salt and sugar
Dried seaweed/Nori
Crabstick, sliced
Avocado, sliced
Tuna, mashed and mix with Japanese mayonnaise
Egg, beaten and fried, then slice

Okay, sorry, I'm not good with recipe, so I just write down the things I did. Basically, making sushi roll is very easy, and you can add things on your own liking.

You will need a bamboo sushi mat to roll the sushi, since we want to keep the seaweed dry and crispy. Then, make sure you have a very sharp knife to slice. You don't want to end up with unrolled sushi, do you? Above is the rolled sushi. I know it looks so not professional. But well, it's quite good for an amateur like me. RIGHT?

Okay, drum roll please!


I better just show you the end result directly. Tell me, they look quite good, don't they? And guess what, they are really yummy. You can dip them in light soya sauce mixed with wasabi or those Japanese mayonnaise to add more taste.

You must be wondering what's that beside the sushi. It's my-own-acclaimed Japanese salad.
Fine, actually it's left-over salad. Since there are some crabstick, avocado, and egg left from the sushi, I decided to mix them with some hand torn lettuce. The special thing from this salad is the dressing. It's the smaller bottle in the pic. You can get one in the supermarket, Japanese section. They're wonderful. That was the first time I tried it, and I loved it. It just mixed really well with everything in the salad. Must-try!

The proud chef, hahaha.. Sorry for the funny face..
