    Butter & Soy Sauce Corn Rice

    Have you tried ‘Butter & Soy Grilled Corn’? It is so yummy. When corn is not in season, frozen corn cobs or kernels can be cooked in the same way, and they are also yummy. Mix the butter & soy sauce flavoured corn kernels with freshly cooked rice to make this dish. It is yummy, …

    Edible Chrysanthemum & Kombu Mazegohan

    Every Asian grocery sells this vegetables but most Australians don’t know what it is. Once known it is ‘Chrysanthemum’, they would ask ‘Can we eat that?’ OK… it is actually a plant in the Daisy Family and it is a vegetable that is edible. Edible Chrysanthemum has a very strong distinguish flavour, which I hated …

    Salmon & Wakame Mazegohan

    My super-easy ‘Salmon Takikomigohan’ is becoming popular. One of my friends has been cooking it repeatedly. However, ‘Salmon Mazegohan’ is a lot tastier and I like it more even though I have to cook Salmon separately. ‘Grilled Salmon & Watercress Mazegohan’, which I introduced on the other day, sounds time-consuming because of the word ‘Grilled’. …

    Grilled Salmon & Watercress Mazegohan

    My ‘Salmon Takikomigohan’ is super easy to cook. Compare to that dish, you need a little bit more effort to make this ‘Mazegohan’ because you need to grill OR pan-fry Salmon fillets first, but it is worth it. You don’t like peppery Watercress? Don’t worry because it won’t be peppery as Watercress will be cooked …

    Rice Salad

    It’s easy to make. Add plenty of fresh vegetables in hand and use your favourite salad dressing to season if you like. I always add ‘Edamame’ (young soy beans) for crunchy texture and protein. This can be a perfect complete meal. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients Cooked Rice 500g *Japanese Short Grain Rice (Sushi Rice) recommended …

    Pork ‘Okowa’ Steamed Glutinous Rice

    ‘Okowa’ is the name of a type of steamed glutinous rice dish and it’s my favourite. I love ‘Okowa’ dishes. Especially the one my mother cooks by steaming. This Pork ‘Okowa’ recipe is inspired by Chinese rice dumplings made of glutinous rice stuffed with other ingredients and wrapped in large leaves. The triangular shaped dumplings …

    Bibimbap-Inspired Beef Mazegohan

    As you know, ‘Bibimbap’ is a Korean dish, and the word literally means ‘Mixed Rice’ which is same as ‘Mazegohan’ in Japanese. I particularly like ‘Hot Stone Pot Bibimbap’ that is served in a very hot stone bowl. The stone bowl is so hot that anything that touches it sizzles, and the rice becomes browned …

    Celery Leaves Mazegohan

    When you buy a bunch of celery, what do you do with the leaves and thin stalks? You are not throwing them away, are you? I sometimes use them for soup and stir-fry, but this is my favourite way to use them up. Try it once and you will never waste the celery leaves again. …

    Rocket Rice

    This is what my mother used to make with Daikon leaves. She used to pickle a large barrelful of Daikon to make ‘Takuan’. She didn’t waste the Daikon leaves. She pickled the leaves as well. She used just salt for leaves. The salty pickled Daikon leaves were still bitter & peppery. She often cut them …

    Edamame Rice

    One of my favourite rice dishes is ‘Green Peas Rice’ which can be enjoyed only in the season when I can get fresh peas just removed from pods. This ‘Edamame Rice’ used to be an alternative dish to me because Frozen Edamame are available any time, but now it is my another favourite rice dish. …

    Beef Mazegohan

    This is my children’s favourite Mazegohan dish! Beef can be replaced by pork or chicken, but for this dish we we like beef the best. I often mix in some crunchy Edamame beans which are available frozen from many Asian grocery stores and I totally recommend this addition. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients Rice 3 cups …
