    ‘Ojiya’ Egg Rice Porridge

    When I am sick with a cold, I want ‘Okayu’, that is Japanese style Rice Porridge. It’s easy to digest but not really nutritious. Once I started recovering, cook this ‘Ojiya’ Egg Rice Porridge for me. If I have a better appetite and my sore throat is not too bad, you can add more vegetables. …

  • Mazegohan Pork

    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 & Pork Fried Rice

    Sweet and sour flavour of Pickled Sliced Ginger (aka Sushi Ginger) goes well with oily Pork. But you can replace Pork with Chicken or Beef. I like topping with extra Pickled Ginger. If you like spicy food, you may wish to add Chilli, but too much chilli would spoil the delicate flavour of Pickled Ginger. …

  • 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 …

    Turmeric Rice

    I don’t know about the health benefit of Turmeric very well, but it is fun to cook striking yellow rice using Turmeric. I sometimes cook rice with saffron when I serve the rice with curry, as saffron makes rice yellow but it is quite expensive. Turmeric Rice is just good enough. I recommend not to …
