You do not need to buy Wakame Rice Seasoning Mix. It is easy to prepare. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 2 cups (*180ml cup) Japanese Short Grain …

    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 …

    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) …

    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 …

    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. …
