Japanese Rice cook and cool

Mirin or white wine
slice vertically (optional)

Cook your rice as how you regularly cook it and let it cool.
In a bowl mix the liquid ingredients.
Slice the veggies that you will use and remove the seeds. Blanch carrots before adding in the sushi roll.
In a separate bowl mix rice and add the liquid mixture slowly. Try not to over mix your rice.
Now in your working table place the bamboo rolling mat and put a cling wrap on top then place the Nori sheet with the rough side facing up.
Scoop rice and spread in the Nori sheet evenly leaving about 1/2 inch -top of Nori sheet uncovered with rice.
Now put the cut veggies on the other end but don't over fill it.
Then roll the bamboo mat and Nori sheet slowly to close the sushi roll. Put water in the uncovered area to close. Make sure to have water beside you as it can be a little sticky.
After rolling place in a chopping board and cut accordingly with a sharp knife. I try to wet my knife to avoid it from sticking in the rice.
Garnish with roasted sesame seeds.
