Kappa Maki, its a simple cucumber rolls with sushi rice and cucumber thin strips rolled with Nori(roasted seaweed sheets)..simple japanese sushi with simple ingredients..i never ever tried or had sushis at home and also in restaurants.. for the first time i tried at home and served this maki rolls with store bought sauce, for my surprise my H liked it much also for the first time he tasted this japanese rolls..i thought how am going to roll the nori sheet once i spread the rice but its really very easy to roll this sushis even without the bamboo mat, i loved this simple maki...usually sushi rice are prepared with dashi (a stock prepared with water, seaweed and fish flakes)i skipped everything and while browsing i saw that sushi rice can be prepared well with soyasauce and salt which seems quite easy and prefect for me, so i prepared my sushi rice with soyasauce and salt, i found this kappa maki here..this kappa maki goes to AWED-Japanese guest hosted by Lavi of Home Cooks Recipes, event by DK.
2cups Sushi rice
4nos Cucumber sticks
Few sesame seeds
Arrange the half nori sheet on the top of the bamboo mat(i didnt used bamboo mat) and spread the sushi rice over the nori sheet..place the cucumber sticks lengthwise and springle few sesame seeds over the cucumber...roll the nori sheet by pressing firmly to shape the sushi as cylinder..if u r using the bamboo mat, press the nori sheet firmly..
Cut the sushi roll with sharp knife as medium size pieces.. Serve this rolls with any japanese sauce!
