Yay! It's Sushi Day!

Because why not! It’s International Sushi Day and all we need to do is celebrate the wonderful delight. Sushi Day is celebrated to raise awareness about this aesthetic dish. And, it’s almost fair to admire this artistic dish that is truly loved by everyone. Even though its origins remain unknown as to whether it originated in China or Japan, it’s enjoyed all around the world. When we say Sushi, people tend to think it’s only about raw fish wrapped in sticky rice but this is more than that, a dish with vinegared rice served alongside various fillings and toppings, including raw fish. 

Also, did you know that Sushi was mainly invented to preserve fish? It was originally used as a preservation method where fermented rice was used to store fish for anything up to a year. In ancient days, people used to throw out the rice and only consume the stored fish but later in the 16th century, people used vinegared rice and started to consume the rice as well. Well, that’s news!

But, all sushi recipes don't have fish. Yes, you heard us right! There are tons of variations when it comes to this wonderful dish. So on this Sushi Day why not have a virtual home-making Sushi competition with your friends? Let your fam judge you and declare one of you a ‘sushi master’! Here are some easy peasy lemon squeezy recipes for you which will help you to win this competition for sure! 

But first, some tips for eating/making it...

  1. Dip sushi into soya sauce so that the chances of getting it broken will be very little. 

  2. Do not slice them into tiny pieces. It is always good to cut sushi in an edible slice.

  3. Sushi was earlier eaten with fingers so there is no wrong in eating sushi with your hands if you don’t know how to use a chopstick. 

  4. Never overwork the rice or roll the sushi in crunchy rice unless you wanna ruin the dish. 

  5. Keep your knife blade barely wet while slicing sushi.
