Avocado and Mango Temaki

Avocado & Mango Temaki with pickled sushi ginger

This is incredibly simple and delectable dish. As long as you can cook a pot of rice and cut avocado and mango, this dish is not a problem for you. Anyone can do it.

Preparation: 15 mins, Cooking time: 20 mins

Ingredients (makes 6)
° 200g rice, washed and drained
° 400ml water
° 1½-2 tablespoons Japanese rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
° 1 teaspoon mirin or ½ teaspoon cooking rice wine (optional)
° 1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
° ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste
° 6 sheets nori
° 1 ripe avocado, stoned, peeled and cut into 6 wedges
° 1 ripe mango, peeled and cut into 6 wedges
° some pickled sushi ginger
° some roasted sesame seeds (optional)

1. Add the rice and water into an electric rice cooker and turn it on. When done, leave the cooked rice to rest, covered, for 5-10 minutes.
2. Add the vinegar, mirin, sugar and salt into the rice, and mix well. Taste it.
3. Place some rice on the nori sheet. Add avocado and mango slices. Fold into a cone shape and top with some sesame seeds. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 5 more rolls in the same way.
4. Garnish with some pickled sushi ginger before serving.

I love mango, you making me hungry. Maybe, I will make Mango Sago Dessert or Mango + Watermelom + Honeydew Sago Dessert (yellow,red,greenish white in colour).

Many, many years back. My tution kid's mom use to give me Apple Mango (Big and Nice) that they grow. I missed that.

Chow Vegan, the next sushi i might be making is bread sushi. Replacing rice with white bread, but I haven't really think of what to put in it. Cucumber is too common, but that go well with bread.

Cheers :)
