“Sushi” means sour tasting and this flavour is due to use of vinegar in this dish. There is no doubt that Sushi is the most famous Japanese dish all over the world. Traditionally, Sushi consists of two parts, Shari and Neta. Shari is basically vinegar flavoured steamed rice whereas the Neta is other ingredients. This Japanese dish is famous for its rich taste and easy-to-make recipe. Moreover, there are many varieties in Sushi. For instance, Nigiri Sushi is a hand shaped roll, Oshi Sushi is pressed Sushi and Chirashi Sushi is the scattered form of this dish.
