Founder of KuKClean India, an initiative towards eating right. This is one of my first innovative recipes which I served in one of the festivals in Aroville, India. Initially, I had no name for this recipe but the audience loved it so much that they called it Indian Sushi. I rolled 1000+ banana rolls on that day and this recipe inspired me to start KuKClean. Few also suggested me to get this recipe patented but here is my secret recipe.
