The variety and diversity of sushi is commendable. There are so many different ways to make the globally popular Japanese dish. From vegetarian to seafood sushi, the filling is quite distinct. Given its popularity, some Indian varieties have also taken shape, as has the Korean version, called kimbap. While most of us may take a trip to the restaurant to have sushi, you can try making one at home too.
