Cook's Notes

If you don't have a bamboo mat, you can line a clean kitchen towel with plastic wrap and use that as a guide for rolling.

    Ahhh this is perfect! My little one has really gotten into sushi (thank god it’s something that’s not chicken nuggets) so I’ve promised her that we’ll start having it for dinner (only problem being I know very little about sushi and I literally have no idea at all how you go about making iti haha). So this is such a great guide! Thank you! In terms of the rice do you need to add anything else? I’ve been going around the internet and printing out various guides I can find (I’m trying to build up a collection haha) and anyway this one says something about sesame seeds on/in the rice ( ). Is that a common thing in sushi or is it done for only certain types? If so which ones use the sesame seeds and which don’t? x

      While I have never seen sesame seeds in the rice, I believe certain rolls have sesame seeds in them. What I do know is that sushi rice cannot be called sushi rice if it isn't cooked with salt, sugar and rice vinigar. Those are the ingredients that make the flavor of sushi rice unique.
