Making a sushi is no joke. It requires some special ingredients and a lot of patience too, but it is completely worth the effort. The good news is that, once you get the hang of how to arrange, roll and cut up the sushi, you will find it to be a very versatile and convenient dish and you can start making your own variants with your choice of veggies.

The way you cook the rice is very important – you need to stir it occasionally and ensure that it doesn’t stick or lump up while cooking. Thereafter, the rice is flavoured with a sesame and vinegar dressing, layered with veggies – in this case avocados and cucumber, rolled and cut up tactfully.

To make this sushi, make sure you use ripe avocados and take care while cutting them, to make neat strips without mashing. Once you get it right, you will forget all the effort that went into it, because this Avocado and Cucumber Sushi served with Oriental sauces and pickled ginger, is a totally immersive experience that will delight you to the core!

My sister loves sushi, she''s soon going to visit Africa from US, unfortunately nori sheets are not available here, is there an option for that? Can we use normal sticky rice instead of sushi rice?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Saifa, To make sushi.. the ingredients are exotic.. these ingredients will be available in supermarkets where imported stuffs will be available.. and the rice also.. we would suggest you to use the sticky rice mentioned in this recipe.. as this gives a perfect taste and texture to the sushi.

Sushi are my favourite, I always thought they are very difficult to make but when I tried this it is so easy and taste just like restaurant types.
