  • 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 …

    Daikon Mochi

    ‘Mochi’ is often translated as ‘Rice Cake’. It is a rubbery chewy thick paste made of steamed short-grain glutinous rice pounded. There are some easier methods to make ‘Mochi’. This is a very simple savoury ‘Mochi’. Ingredients are Daikon (White Radish), Glutinous Rice Flour and Salt. Because it is so easy to make, you can …

    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. …

  • Mazegohan

    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 …

  • 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 …

  • Fish Takikomigohan

    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 …

  • Baked & Fried Rice

    Bolognese Doria

    Have you got leftover Bolognese sauce? Try this Doria. ‘Doria’ is a dish of butter rice or pilaf covered with white sauce and grated cheese, then baked in the oven. You can find my ‘Doria’ recipes on this website, but this is the easiest Doria recipe if you already have Bolognese sauce. Makes 4 Servings …

  • Cooking Rice

    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 …

  • Baked & Fried Rice Chicken

    Chicken & Chorizo Baked Rice

    This type of rice dish similar to ‘Paella’ is hard to cook without a good source of heat. I have tried some different methods and now I believe the easiest and the best method is baking in the oven after cooking over the cooktop. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 500g Chicken Thigh FilletsSalt & Pepper2 tablespoons …

  • Baked & Fried Rice Curry

    Curry Doria

    I used to make ‘Curry Doria’ when I had left-over Curry and cooked Rice. It’s quite simple to make. Mix the left-over Curry and cooked Rice, loosely fill a baking dish, cover with White Sauce and some shredded Cheese, and bake in the oven until golden. However, I rarely have left-over Curry and Rice these …

  • 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 …

  • Baked & Fried Rice

    Curry Fried Rice

    In Japan, most commonly Sausages are used for this fried rice dish, but I use any protein that I have in hand. This time I used a thick slice of Ham. Curry Powder that I use is a quite spicy one. You may wish to add more or less, but do not forget the Soy …

  • Chicken Takikomigohan

    Ginger Chicken Takikomigohan

    I love ‘Takikomigohan’ which is seasoned rice cooked with vegetables, mushrooms, seafood or chicken. Probably it is my absolute favourite Japanese food. You can find quite a few recipes on this site and I cook them often, and I think this is the easiest ‘Takikomigohan’ recipe. You need 3 main ingredients, and they are Rice, …

  • Onigiri (Rice Balls)

    Rice Sandwich ‘Onigirazu’

    ‘Onigirazu’ can be translated as ‘not formed/shaped by hands’. Compared to ‘Onigiri’ (Japanese Rice Ball) that is shaped into a ball or a triangle by hands, ‘Onigirazu’ is shaped into a flat square and wrapped with Nori. This new food has no rule at all about the filling. You can use whatever you like. This …

  • Baked & Fried Rice Chicken

    Basic Oven-Baked Pilaf

    I love rice dishes. ‘Takikomigohan’, ‘Mazegohan’, baked rice and fried rice, and all other rice dishes. In Melbourne, I have a great access to a huge variety of rice and I enjoy cooking them. However, cooking rice in a saucepan or a frying pan can become tricky because I sometimes forget about rice when I …

  • Other Seafood Takikomigohan

    Oysters Takikomigohan

    In Japan, shucked Oysters are sold in plastic containers in the same way as meat. They are often quite large and not particularly expensive. Here in Melbourne, Oysters are fancy food. Shucked Oysters are always sold on the half-shell and they are often rather small and quite expensive. This is very disappointing because I like …

  • Chicken Mazegohan

    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, …
