Sushi is an exotic dish of Japanese origin. It is made of a special type of rice, which is cooked and flavoured with a vinegar-based dressing, before being layered with a sushi sheet and other ingredients. Vegetarian versions include vegetables or tropical fruits. In this exciting sushi, the rice is dressed in a mixture of vinegar and sesame seeds, and layered with avocado and cheese.
It is important to cook the sushi rice properly, stirring occasionally to ensure that it does not stick while cooking. Make use of ripe avocados and cut them carefully, to get proper strips without mashing it up. Rolling up and cutting the sushi is an art, but you can learn it with a bit of effort. Enjoy the Avocado and Cream Cheese Sushi immediately with tongue-tingling sauces and pickled ginger.
