Learn how to make temaki (sushi rice hand rolls), then check out our maki sushi rolls, california rolls and sushi sandwich.


  • 150g brown sushi rice
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3 nori sheets
  • 1 small carrot, shredded
  • 1 roasted red pepper from a jar, cut into 1cm strips
  • ¼ cucumber, cut into 8cm batons
  • ½ avocado, thinly sliced


  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped


  • STEP 1

    Wash the rice well, drain and tip into a pan with 500ml of cold water and a pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, put on a lid and cook gently for 25-30 minutes or until all of the water is absorbed and the rice is cooked. Gently stir the rice vinegar into the rice, being careful not to overmix, and leave to cool for 5 minutes.

  • STEP 2

    Use a pair of scissors to cut the nori sheets diagonally from corner to corner to create 6 triangles. Divide the rice between each triangle, leaving a 1cm border around the edges. Divide the carrot, pepper, cucumber and avocado equally on top of the rice and roll each triangle to create a cone.

  • STEP 3

    Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and serve with the temaki for dipping.
