Indian sushi

June 18, 2010

Sounds strange but why not!  I’m a big believer in leftovers, but what I don’t like doing is serving the exact same meal the next night.  I think it comes from my habit of eating the same breakfast and lunch pretty much every day.  I know…not a great habit but I do add a bunch of ingredients into each one.   And so I like a different meal each night.  Remember the coconut curry rice from yesterday? well today it’s sushi!  The rice came out so thick that it really works perfectly as a sticky rice and rolling it was very easy.

Start with your Nori Seaweed and place your rice along the edge.  Here you could add very thinly sliced carrots, radishes, green onions, avocado or anything else you can think of.  I’m being lazy tonight and keeping it simple.

Now you simply roll the Nori as tightly as possible and dampen the edge to keep it sealed.  If I were making traditional sushi then I would use a bamboo mat and follow the correct method.  How to roll sushi There’s nothing traditional about this stuff though!

Slice these into about 5-6 pieces with a very sharp knife.

I had a snack before dinner!

Finishing up more leftovers I grilled a fresh piece of salmon with just a bit of lemon pepper and served it with last nights cauliflower mash and of course some curried ‘sushi’.

Here I dipped the sushi into golden flax seeds for a bit of crunch.    Final verdict?  this was just ok….as you might imagine, curry and coconut don’t go perfectly with soy sauce and wasabi.  The flavors were a bit odd together and the rice had enough salt already before dipping into soy sauce.  I think I definitely met my sodium quota for the day!        Hey, at least we didn’t have the same dinner two nights in a row!
