Easy peasy: Just do SUSHI yourself!

Simple instructions: make sushi yourself!

Have you ever Homemade sushit? Eg. Avocado or salmon maki? I thought that was very time-consuming – until a friend of mine Sushi starter kit flocked (-> more about that right now)! It is a box that costs about 12 € and contains everything you need to Make sushi needed – so, for example also the mat used for rolling.

Meanwhile, we have come to the taste and make our own sushi regularly. So today I want to show you how easy it is!

You need these things to prepare sushi at home:

  • Sushi rice (This sticks more strongly than “normal” rice and has smaller, rounder grains
  • Sushi roll mat ->bamboo mat to curl up
  • rice vinegar -> if necessary, you can also use mild / diluted normal vinegar
  • Nori seaweed for maki (the classic small rolls)
  • avocado or cucumber, salmon, tuna, etc. for the stuffing
  • Soy sauce

Also yes as needed:

  • Inlaid ginger
  • Wasabi (spicy horseradish paste -> I do not like it personally)
  • rod

Where to get ingredients for homemade sushi?

The ingredients you can for example in Asia-Laden or in larger ones supermarkets to buy. I like to order these Reishunger.de, where both the quality and the price are right. At that time I had the presentation in the TV show Cave of the Lions convinced and that Sushi Set just perfect for beginners: -> Click here for the online shop. * Affiliate link

Recipe for homemade sushi / avocado maki

Ingredients for 2 persons:

  • 200 g of rice
  • 1.5 tablespoons of rice vinegar (alternatively: possibly mild “normal” vinegar – if necessary diluted with a little water!)
  • 1.5 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 – 2 avocado

The preparation of homemade sushi:

Step 1: Prepare the rice!

Sushi rice Cook according to the package instructions. When the rice is cooked, drain the water and mix the vinegar, sugar and salt with the rice. Then: rice, e.g. spread on a plate and let cool to room temperature.

Step 2: Rolling the sushi / maki

Since the rice after my first sushi try between the bamboo mat stuck, I now wrap this with Cling film on. Then I halve Nori sheet and distribute something rice on the middle / lower area. Then the filling comes to it – so z Avocado strip, Salmon or cucumber. To the sushi roll glue together after rolling, I moisten the top with water and then start rolling the algae leaf carefully from below with the mat.

The finished one Sushi Roll (I have packed this too full) I cut into 4 equal pieces (-> the threads of the bamboo mat serve as orientation):

And this is the result: Certainly not perfect, but delicious! Now only something is missing Soy sauce for dipping!

And when I think about how much money we have compared to visiting one Sushi restaurants save, it tastes twice as good! 4 Nori leaves are enough (if I share them) for 8 x 4 = 32 small maki rolls. There are also 200 g rice and 1-2 avocados – that makes approx. 5 € for 32 sushi!!
