Two of my close friends here are from Korea and one of my friend's hubby is chef in a Korean Restaurant ! I was very lucky to have a friend whose hubby is a chef, many times when her hubby used come back from work he always brought the restaurant food for their dinner and if I am with her during that time he gives a share of the food to me too and I was lucky several times ! Thats how my love for Korean food started :)
Korean Sushi was one of my favourite among them and my friends tought me how to make that at home, my friend even bought me a roasted sea weed sheets for me to try sushi at home,she even offered to come home and show me how to make it, but before she could comeover I decided to try it myself and I was very happy with the result. So here is a recipe from my friend Mijong :)
