MANGO SUSHI ROLL WITH PICKLED CARROTS
This mango sushi roll is made with sweet mangos and salty carrots rolled in sushi rice and Nori paper. Once you make a few rolls and get used to it, sushi can be the quickest, most budget-friendly food you can make.
PREPARE THE RICE
Start by combining the water and rice in a medium saucepan, bring to a soft boil. Then, cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until all the water had been absorbed.
Once finished, take the rice off the burner and leave covered for 10 minutes. When the rice is done, stir with a wooden spoon, then transfer to a mixing bowl. Mix in the rice vinegar, then set aside to cool.
PREPARE THE VEGETABLES AND FRUIT
While the rice is cooling, slice the mango into thin strips, and take 6-pickled carrots out of the jar. Set aside.
SET UP THE MANGO ROLL
Now, place your sushi mat down, followed by a piece of Nori paper, rough side down.
You need a bowl of cold water close by to keep your hands wet while handling the rice. So, with wet hands, place a thin layer of rice on the Nori paper. Arrange the pickled carrot in a single line along the width of the Nori paper. Next, arrange the mango strips alongside the pickled carrot.
Next, take the end of the Nori sheet that is closest to you and try to tightly roll it over the fillings. Continue to roll until the Nori sheet is completely wrapped around the sushi.
To finish, run cold water over the knife and cut the sushi into desired sized pieces, probably about 8.
