Well, today I'll show you how to make "harumaki".Do you know harumaki? It is the food wrapped in the skin of a Chinese-style stir-fry.You might think it hard to cook.But it is really easy dishes.You can wrap anything you like.Stir-fried vegetables, kinpira (Japanese-style stir-fried vegetables), boiled vegetables, fried tofu is also good.Today I used a carrot and seaweed.Very simple, but this is it delicious.

ingredients for 1 person

1/2carrot(about 2oz)
2tbsp dried seaweed

  1. Thank you! I have been wanting to make spring rolls for some time now

  2. What kind of seaweed are you using? It gets confusing in the USA as we have Korean, Chinese, and Japanese labelled kinds. I have over 5 types of seaweed in our house. so not sure which type to use.
