Last Japanese cooking class - party sushi! Otherise known as chirashi (scattered) sushi, it’s basically vinegared rice with sushi toppings. My toppings included avocado, tomato, lotus root crisp (these were amazing), fried bamboo shoot, fine shredded omelette and carrots cut into widdle bunny wabbit and flower shapes.
With spicy mayo, goma ae and tofu mash
My first attempt - filled with carrot, green bean, avocado and tofu mash
Leftovers for lunch at work tomorrow!
Teriyaki tofu, goma ae, seasoned rice, pickled cabbage
Top tofu tip: soak out excess moisture with kitchen paper then dust with cornflour before frying for crispy goodness. The cornflour also helps thicken up the sauce, making a yummy sticky glaze.
