View Full Version : Gopal's Power Wrap....similar recipe?
02-02-2010, 01:31 AM
I had these recently and I loved them as did my toddler. I need to make them. Is there a recipe out there on making them? If not a good one, then I will just make it up. I was wondering how much of the nori wrapper is used and how to get such a small tight roll.

I know of no Recipe but to get a tight Wrap, you need a little bambo mat. You could purchase that at an Asian Market.

Yes, I have a mat already, but those are soooo small. I guess I will just have to try it. I was hoping to learn from someone else's efforts. Maybe I will post mine efforts here when i've tried it.
I'm not familiar with Gopal's power wrap ~ is it a YT video? Or something at a restaurant perhaps? *Ü*
Okay - posted too soon. I Googled it... I would probably be able to get it wrapped that tightly using my little mat to be honest. There's not much filling in there and a sheet of Nori fits on the mat (width wise).
Oooh - I kept Googling and if you go to Google and type in, "Own Your Brilliance: Always On The Move With Nori Rolls" you might find that interesting. *Ü*

PERFECT!!! That is exactly what I am looking for!! I did not think that it could be a whole sheet of Nori. WONDERFUL!!!! Yeh...I don't have to reinvent the wheel.
Whoo hoo - glad that might help out! I'm going to check it out in more depth, looks neat. *Ü*

I love the curry ones.
The ingredients are listed on the packages, in order of weight. Just make a pate with everything but the nori, and taste it to make sure you have a good ratio of ingredients. You can also view the ingredient list in their website.
Then (as the others said) roll, and using a bamboo mat helps. If you don't have one/ don't want to buy one, a heavy tea towel works well, also.
Keep in mind that they will become more slender as they dehydrate. I recommend dampening more than you normally would for a nori roll in order for the nori to really adhere to the filling.
I enjoy them non-dehydrated, too.
For what it's worth - if anyone wants to buy the little rolling mat, I got mine for less than $2 at one of our Asian markets. *Ü*

Also, if you happen to own Gabriel Cousins Live Rainbow Diet book..there is a section in their on Dehydrated Nori Rolls..but in reality they are all different pate combinations rolled on a nori sheet and dehydrated.

Thanks I do have COusen's book and I thought it was more like crackers, but I will look again.
THanks for all of the help everyone.
