The process is actually very simple, for the participants lay down the filling ingredients on the nori (seaweed sheet) which is then rolled with the help of a bamboo mat and. Once rolled, which is the tricky part, it can be cut into sections to be served along with soy sauce, pickled ginger and wasabi.

The steps are almost complete, for all they need to do is roll the sushi gently to the shape of a cylinder then cut it up. Rolling sushi is one of the most difficult aspects while making sushi as there needs to be a special technique to make the roll even.
