2-Delicious-Type of Cucumber Sushi Roll (Vegetarian/ Gluten-free)

Today I introduce you to “2-Delicious-Type of Cucumber Sushi Roll”. Most people know about sushi rolls wrapped with dried seaweed. But this roll is wrapped with thin fried egg. The other cucumber roll is made with the rice side out. I think this is more colorful than regular sushi rolls, and it looks fancy. It is a very healthy and delicious dish!!

When you make sushi rolls, you need a Makisu which is a bamboo mat, to make a good shape. You can buy a Makisu at many Asian supermarkets and also on  Amazon.

The recipe is

Make sushi rice vinegar with rice vinegar, sugar and salt. Mix the sushi rice vinegar and cooked rice. (You can buy some cooked rice. Also I have a pan cooked rice recipe. If you have a rice cooker, you might want to use it.)

Here is my cooked rice recipe in PDF: White Rice Recipe

Make thin fried egg (mix with slurry so as not to break easily). Spread the sushi rice on the egg on the Makisu. Place the cucumber and roll up.

To make cucumber inside-out sushi roll, spread the sushi rice on the dried seaweed. Place it rice side down on a piece of parchment paper on the Makisu, put the cucumber and roll up.
