it does look like a fabulous dish. Tell me about the seaweed - is it readily available in regular supermarkets, and does it need to be cooked, or just soaked?

Hi Leena,

Yes :)

You can get it from Japanese supermarket. Soaked it prior to cooking. As I simplified the method without stir-fry, so just replace by blanching.

Cheers :)
