Wet your hands. This will prevent the rice from sticking to your fingers. Spread a layer of sushi rice over the nori. Leave 1 cm at the top, you need this bare strip to hold the roll in place. Let the rice lies over the Nori evenly as this will make the rolling stage much easier.
Place Nori and rice onto the makisu. Sprinkle on a few sesame seeds, lay the cucumber strips horizontally across the centre.
Fold the maki with makisu and apply pressure. Maki is shaped in this way. Fold the mat forwards again and apply more pressure.
In order to have smooth cut, dip the end of your knife into water. Slice the maki in half. Cut off the uneven ends. Then cut the maki into 6 even pieces. Place the maki on a plate, facing up.
