Today, there are different varieties of sushi that are served in American restaurants. These varieties are considered to be a western version of the traditional Maki sushi.
Preparing sushi is definitely an art form. This Japanese dish seems intimidating. So most people think it’s best left to the professionals. But you can make sushi at home, even if you’re a beginner.
You should only use short-grained sushi rice. It’s starchy and absorbent, which makes it sticky. Jasmine, Basmati or other long-grained varieties aren’t suitably absorbent and are too dry and hard.
