I had no intention whatsoever to try Japanese food a few years back, there were many reasons behind this excuse. First of all, I had never heard about it, and once Japanese food started to make an appearance in the market, the first thought crossed my mind that Japanese food looks bland, not sure how I can handle it?  The person who has eaten spicy and colourful food for their whole life, it's hard to make that move! So how and when did I encounter Japanese food and how did I become a huge fan of it?

A couple of years back, the family wanted to treat me on Mother's day, so they booked a table for us and surprised me. When they took me to one of the popular Japanese restaurant chains, I had my doubts.  People say eating Sushi for the first time can be intimidating. But that was not the case at all! The kick from the wasabi, mirin and pickled ginger was just to die for. All these things made the food more enjoyable and flavourful. It was a totally different experience, different flavours and textures to experiment with. Thanks to my daughter who introduced me to it, and now we have a whole new addition to our household menu!

Since I came out of from the restaurant,  the great tastes lingered in my mouth, the flavours were dancing in my head and family knew that so well, so once again just after a week we went again and enjoyed sushi.  We got almost addicted and let me tell you Sushi does not come here cheap! So daughter had a go at making it at home and without any further delay, we popped into an oriental supermarket and grabbed all the ingredients that we needed.

We had a great experience in making fresh Sushi at home, we were just surprised how easy it was to roll. The main task was to get together all the ingredients. She prepared Maki and California Rolls for us. The great thing about Sushi is that you can eat it with your hands too, well I have mastered using chopsticks though :)

Sushi can be served as an appetizer or light meal, or the main course. Generally, these are served with Soy sauce, wasabi paste and pickled ginger. It goes well with Miso soup, seaweed and cucumber salad.

Afterwards, I also gained confidence in rolling the Sushi too :)



Notes:-

Keep a bowl of cold water when preparing the sushi, it will prevent the rice sticking to your fingers and also the knife when cutting the rolls.
