How to choose the best avocados!

Picking edible avocados is a bit like playing the lottery. Either they are too hard or they are brown.

There are many who tap on avocados to see if they are ripe. There is no reason for that. The only thing you get from it is that you get to buy avocados that have been pressed.

Most supermarkets sell avocados that are packed in pairs in foil. These are avocados that I recommend you buy. It’s harder for people to press the avocados when they are packed that way.

When you buy avocados, choose the avocados that are light brown in the peel. Feel free to buy them a few days before you need to use them. Let them lie and ripen on the kitchen table or window sill.

Then they should very much like to be perfect when they are to be used.

By that I mean that if the rice is not cooked to perfection and kept in the right way the individual rice grains will get tougher and they will also looser their texture.

The vegetables should be prepared or cooked to perfection, otherwise any moisture will get sucked into the rolls and it will give a cloth-like feel.
