Everybody loves Sushi, but it is not easy to make. Sometimes we don’t have the time, sometimes we don’t get the ingredients, and sometimes we are afraid of whether we can handle the sticky rice properly.

Well, this Dhokla Sushi with Carrots is an opportunity for everybody to make and enjoy a homemade sushi-like snack anytime they want! It is a fusion of Indian and Japanese cuisine, in which a dhokla made with idli batter forms the base of the sushi.

The sheet is lined with black sesame seeds and coconut on one side, and layered with carrot strips, cheese and koro sambhar powder on the inner side, before rolling and cutting it up like sushi.

Koro sambhar, a Gujarati spice powder gives the Dhokla Sushi with Carrots a really tongue-tickling flavour, while the contrasting colours of white and orange make the dish a delight to behold. Serve the sushi with Wasabi Mayo Sauce to experience a blast of spice!

Rolling a round dhokla patty is a mess. It ends up in uneven rolls and open ends. The patty breaks while rolling if not elastic enough. Tarlaben missed out to mention how thick should be the steamed patty. Imagination is not enough- must combine with high finish, presentable and eatable dishes. I hope you comprehend.
