    Corn & Lentils Mazegohan

    Recently I had an opportunity to attend an event to celebrate Iranian New Year. I was lucky to taste many Iranian dishes. I learned Rice is the main food in Iran. Same in Japan. I learned a lot about Iranian culture and I was most surprised at many similarities between Iranian culture and Japanese culture. …

    Teriyaki Chicken Mazegohan

    When I make a ‘Bento’ lunch for my family members, I often cook Teriyaki Chicken and I place it on the packed Rice. I often add Ginger to Teriyaki Sauce. This dish is actually exactly the same thing. I just cut Chicken into smaller pieces and I mixed the Teriyaki Chicken with freshly cooked Rice. …

    Vegan Soy Meat Mazegohan

    My family’s favourite Mazegohan is ‘Beef Mazegohan’. Today I replaced Beef with Soy Meat for a Vegan version. I used Fillet type, but Mince type can be used.

    Mixed Grains & Black Bean Salad

    I cooked Mixed Grain today. Because I added some Black Rice, it turned purple. I was planning to make a Rice Salad, but the colour of the Mixed Grains reminded me my ‘Cuban Black Beans’, and I ended up making this salad. Because it was so good, I am now writing down how I made …

    Asian Mushrooms & Garlic Mazegohan

    I love ‘Asian Mushroom Takikomigohan’, that is Rice and Mushrooms cooked together. To cook them together, there is a limit on how much mushrooms I can add. If I cook Mushrooms separately, I can add as much as I want. Here is a lovely Garlic flavoured Mushroom Mazegohan, that is Rice and Mushrooms cooked separately. …

    Asparagus & Egg Mazegohan

    My ‘Asparagus Butter Takikomigohan’ is delicious, but Asparagus turns quite soft as it is cooked with Rice. Then I created this Mazegohan version. Asparagus is mixed with cooked Rice, so it retains crunchiness. It is Butter & Soy Sauce flavoured. I am very happy with the result. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 2 cups (*180ml cup) …

    ‘Yukari’ Rice

    You might have seen a bag of fine purple crumbles at Asian grocery stores. The product’s name is ‘Yukari (ゆかり)’ and it’s a Furikake (Rice Seasoning). You sprinkle it over cooked rice or mix with cooked rice. These purple crumbles are dried Red Shiso leaves, that are most commonly used to pickle Ume (similar to …
