    Asian Mushrooms & Garlic Mazegohan

    I love ‘Asian Mushroom Takikomigohan’, that is Rice and Mushrooms cooked together. To cook them together, there is a limit on how much mushrooms I can add. If I cook Mushrooms separately, I can add as much as I want. Here is a lovely Garlic flavoured Mushroom Mazegohan, that is Rice and Mushrooms cooked separately. …

    Asparagus & Egg Mazegohan

    My ‘Asparagus Butter Takikomigohan’ is delicious, but Asparagus turns quite soft as it is cooked with Rice. Then I created this Mazegohan version. Asparagus is mixed with cooked Rice, so it retains crunchiness. It is Butter & Soy Sauce flavoured. I am very happy with the result. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 2 cups (*180ml cup) …

    ‘Yukari’ Rice

    You might have seen a bag of fine purple crumbles at Asian grocery stores. The product’s name is ‘Yukari (ゆかり)’ and it’s a Furikake (Rice Seasoning). You sprinkle it over cooked rice or mix with cooked rice. These purple crumbles are dried Red Shiso leaves, that are most commonly used to pickle Ume (similar to …

    Chicken & Gobō Mazegohan

    Gobō (Burdock Root) is a very popular vegetable in Japan, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to find where I live. That’s why I grew them in my vegetable garden. After I cooked ‘Chicken & Gobō Takikomigohan’, I saved some and froze them. Today I cooked this ‘Chicken & Gobō Mazegohan’ using the saved Gobō. Same ingredients …

    Canned Mackerel Mazegohan

    I am a Mackerel lover. It is not easy to find fresh Mackerel where I live, but canned Mackerel are available form any supermarkets.

    Crunchy Nattō Mazegohan

    If you are thinking to cook Nattō Fried Rice, try this Mazegohan instead. I much prefer Nattō Mazegohan to Fried Rice. To make this Mazegoan, you just mix the ingredients with cooked rice, just like rice salad. The dish tastes great, nutritiously excellent, and healthy. And easy to make!!!

    Dried Shiitake & Peas Mazegohan

    Do you know that sun-dried Shiitake are a great source of Vitamin D? They also have more Umami flavour. In Melbourne where I live, imported Dried Shiitake are widely available but most commercially produced Dried Shiitake are not sun-dried. If you are after the nutritious benefit, purchase fresh Shiitake and dry them under the direct …

If you like my ‘Asian Mushroom Takikomigohan’, you will certainly enjoy this ‘Asian Mushroom …

    Pork & Nori Mazegohan

    I tend to use Oyster Sauce (MAGGI’s Oyster Sauce is my favourite!) when I cook Pork for rice dishes. For this Mazegohan, Oyster Sauce is a key ingredient. Nori sheets need to be toasted over the flames OR something very hot. Please do it because it makes a huge difference even to ‘Yakinori’ that is …

    Carrot Rice

    My son was a very fussy eater when he was young. He hated most vegetables. Luckily he loved curry and if vegetables were in curry, he ate anything. But I couldn’t cook curry every day, so I needed to be creative. This ‘Carrot Rice’ was one of my creations to make him eat vegetables. I …

    Pickled Ginger & Shiso Mazegohan

    Pickled sliced ginger, commonly called ‘Gari’ or ‘Amazu Shoga’ in Japanese, is often served with Sushi. I bought a bag of ‘Pickled Sliced Ginger’ when I made Sushi to entertain friends, but there was a lot of leftover. Do you also have any leftover ‘Pickled Ginger’?Basically it is young ginger thinly sliced, salted, and pickled …

    Chicken & ‘Shiso’ Mazegohan

    ‘Shiso’ (Perilla) is so difficult to find where I live. It is something you can’t use for cooking if you are not growing yourself. But now I know one Asian grocery store that sells Perilla. It is a different type from Japanese ‘Shiso’, but it has same texture and fragrance. If you have ‘Shiso’ (Perilla) …
