This is a Japanese Recipe. In Japanese , Su means Vinegar and Shi if from meshi ,Japanese word for rice, so the word formed as sushi. Normally people think that sushi means made out of Raw fish. But this isn’t true. The fish looks raw but it goes under many processings. Some sushi’s are rolled inside out and some from outside to inside. Recipe for sushi remains mostly the same for most of the time. It depends on what stuffing you use to roll. Mostly Crab meat is used in sushi. But if you use plain veggies inside, it becomes vegetarian sushi or california Veggie roll. I was bit skeptical about how to make sushi at home earlier when my son taught me how to do. He told me that in his school they taught them sushi roll recipe. In this recipe I used Vegetables , so it is completely vegetarian sushi.
