    Beetroot & Azuki Rice

    ‘Sekihan’ is steamed short grain glutinous rice cooked with Azuki (Red Beans). It is traditionally prepared to celebrate special occasions in Japan, because of its red colour which is symbolic of happiness. On the other day, I realised that I knew one vegetable that could make absolutely everything RED. That is Beetroot, which is not …

    Red Cabbage Sloppy Rice

    I hesitate to call this dish ‘Risotto’ but it is almost identical. I cook it in the rice cooker but you can cook in the traditional ‘Risotto’ way with extra stock. I recommend Arborio Rice for creamy texture but Short Grain Rice such as Sushi Rice can be used. Makes 2 Servings Ingredients 2 tablespoons …

    Smoked Oysters Takikomigohan

    I love ‘Oysters Takikomigohan’ but I don’t cooked it often, because Oysters are extremely expensive in Australia. Then, I tried to make ‘Oysters Takikomigohan’ using Canned Smoked Oysters that are not expensive. The result was interesting. I changed the favour and added Asian Mushrooms. This cheap ‘Smoked Oysters Takikomigohan’ is not bad at all! Makes …

    Abura-age & Carrot Takikomigohan

    This is one fo the traditionally popular ‘Takikomigohan’ dishes in Japan, but I didn’t cooked it for a long time. Because it was too hard to find Abura-age (Fried Thin Tofu) in Australia. Not any more! If you like traditional Japanese cuisine’s delicate flavour, you will enjoy this dish. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 2 cups …

    Smoked Salmon Takikomigohan

    My ‘Salmon Takikomigohan’ is very popular. But, on the other day, I found a bone in the dish even though I had checked Salmon fillets carefully. Many years ago, when my son was very young, he has got a fish bone stuck in his throat for three days, and it was a nightmare for us. …

    Asparagus Butter Takikomigohan

    ‘Takikomigohan’ is one of my favourite dishes. It’s a dish of rice that is cooked in seasoned stock with other ingredients. It can be any flavour. Ingredients can be vegetables, mushrooms, seafood, meat, or etc. This is a new one inspired by an Italian dish, Asparagus Risotto. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 200g Asparagus *trimmed, cut …

  • Fish Takikomigohan

    Wakame & Salmon Takikomigohan

    This is another ‘Takikomigohan’ dish that can be cooked using a canned fish. This time I used a Canned Red Salmon. I wanted to add some Hijiki, but Hijiki is quite hard to find where I live. So, I added Dried Chopped Wakame as they are, without rehydrating it. Wow… I was amazed at how …

    Enoki & Mackerel Takikomigohan

    ‘Mackerel’ is my favourite fish, but it is hard to find fresh Mackerel in Australia. That’s why I always stock Canned Mackerel in the pantry and I use it for this dish. If you are lucky to have fresh Mackerel fillets, season with some salt and grill or pan-fry them first. That would make a …

  • Mushrooms Takikomigohan

    Dried Mushrooms Takikomigohan

    One of my favourite ‘Takikomigohan’ is ‘Asian Mushroom Takikomigohan’ and I sometimes crave the dish. One day I really wanted to cook it but had no fresh Asian mushrooms. Fortunately I had a pack of Assorted Dried Mushroom Mix. Mostly Asian mushrooms but Flat Mushrooms were also included, and some were already sliced. I cooked …
