Maki-sushi. I just love Japanese food. While learn to cook, just sushi and rolls. Sushi, which are prepared using a bamboo mat makisu, called rolls, or Maki-sushi [maki-sushi). I want to share a recipe for making rolls at home.
Take sushi rice. Like this. Rice needs to be prepared. Fill the rice in a large bowl. Fill the rice with plenty of purified (boiled, drinking) water and mix quickly with a wooden spatula. Refill the water. If the water is still cloudy this time, repeat the rice washing procedure until the water is clear. Drop the washed rice on a colander, completely draining all the water, and then soak it in cold water for 20-60 minutes. After that, fold the rice back into a colander and let it dry (20 min). It is necessary that the grains absorb moisture and swell. Remember to prepare rice in advance. Between drying and cooking should take half an hour, then the result will be as close to the ideal.
The most important thing in sushi is rice. If the rice is cooked correctly, you can assume that it is done.Stuffing for sushi should be prepared in such a way-solid ingredients cut into strips along the length of the nori. I got cream cheese, salmon and cucumber.

Now you can start cooking rolls.
On the Mat for sushi (makisu) put a plastic wrap on top of a sheet of nori.
On it lay a thin layer of rice. To make it easier to do, hands need to be moistened with water.
Over rice in the center or from one edge it is necessary to put a thin strip of wasabi. Put the filling-cucumber, cheese, salmon.
Gently using a mat to roll the sausage.
Here are the sausages out. It is best to let them rest for about 5-7 minutes, then it will be easier to cut.
Need to cut the sharpest knife. Usually 1 sausage is cut into 6 parts.
I still have the rice and the filling was not enough, so I decided to do the opposite rolls with caviar.
They twist in the rice outside and the nori inside. Well, everything is ready. Rolls with soy sauce, ginger and wasabi are served.
