As I read, "Temaki" means "roll made with the hand". It may contain the same ingredients as sushi, but it is prepared more easily, because what we do is a cone of nori seaweed, stuffed with rice and the condiments that we like. In this case we will use cucumber, avocado and carrot as a base. But you can add the ones you like.

2 portions
  • 400 grams sushi rice
  • nori seaweed
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 carrot
  • avocados
  • soy sauce


Rice: Maybe it's the hardest part, but we should not be afraid. It is good to clarify that the ideal is to do it a few hours before, even a day before, so we can eat them very cold. The first and most important thing is to wash it with a lot of patience.
I suggest placing the rice in a bowl, pour plenty of cold water and mix it gently with the hand, to loosen the starch. Then strain it and rinse it a little. This should be repeated 5 or 6 times, until the water is almost transparent.
To cook it, the ideal is to get a rice cooker because although sometimes it seems too big an investment, if you like rice it will be very worth it if you have one at home. It makes everything easier.
Once the rice is ready, we will place it in a large bowl and with a plastic plate or the lid of a tupperware we fan it so that it starts to cool down.
Next, we will add the vinegar (1/2 glass as much, in general with ¼ reaches), salt and sugar. It is important to clarify that this has a very personal touch. It is better to add little by little (stirring slowly with a wooden spoon) and try the rice before throwing it all. When you like the taste, ready! Let it cool and then you can go to the refrigerator.
Form cones with the seaweed, put a little water on the shore so that it sticks well. Fill with rice and carrot julienne, avocado, cucumber or any vegetables you want. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.


Place several temakis in a tray so that everyone can take the ones they like.


Accompany with prepared soy (chile serrano + lemon juice + roasted onions).
