Raw vegetable sushi rolls is a Japanese inspired dish which was made similar to Futomaki. I had made this for a cooking competition, the theme of which was 'Cooking without Fire'. This roll is made with all locally available ingredients and makes a beautiful presentation. It goes very well with soy dip and tamarind dip, the recipes of which I have given below. This can be had as a healthy evening snack or as a side for any Asian style meal. Do try it and enjoy.
