Basic ingredients needed to make sushi


  • - Sushi Rice: this is a short-grained, sticky type of rice
  • - Rice Vinegar: a yellow mils type of vinegar used for seasoning the rice
  • - Sugar and Salt: for seasoning the rice
  • - Nori: sheets of roasted seaweed used for making sushi rolls or keeping the topping on Nigiri sushi
  • - Wasabi: a green, spicy paste, made from roots of a kind of horse radish. Fresh Wasabi is very haard to find and very expensive: Wasabi powder can be used instead
