These are the first maki I have ever made myself. I have often enjoyed them at restaurants, not recently, of course. I felt inordinately satisfied as I placed them on the table.
They are a bit too big, one could not put them in one’s mouth whole. They were also slightly fragile, we had to spoon the accompanying sauce over them. However, they were very good.
In the middle of one roll I put beetroot (cooked) and avocado. In the other I put parboiled carrots and avocado. For the sauce, I grated some ginger root into tamari soy sauce and then thinned it slightly with water.
I will do this again. 🙂
