Step 1: You will need…

  • some Nori
  • some Sushi Rice
  • some Cucumber strips
  • some sesame seeds
  • 1 Sushi Rolling mat
  • 1 Knife
  • 1 Bowl of water

Step 2: Lay it out

Moisten your hands in a bowl of water. This will stop the rice from sticking to your fingers. Then spread a layer of sushi rice over the nori.

Leave about 1 cm, or half an inch bare at the top – you will need this bare strip to hold the roll in place. Make sure the rice lies evenly over the Nori as this will make the rolling stage far easier.

Step 3: Fillings

Put the Nori and rice onto the makisu. Sprinkle on some sesame seeds, and then lay the cucumber strips horizontally across the centre

Step 4: Roll

Using the makisu, fold the maki and apply pressure. This shapes the maki. Fold the mat forwards once again and apply more pressure.

Step 5: Slice

To ensure a smooth cut, dip the end of your knife in water. Slice the maki in half. Trim off the uneven ends. Then cut the maki into 6 even pieces.

Display the maki on a plate with each piece facing up.

Step 6: Serve
