    Lazy ‘Korokke’

    ‘Korokke’ is the Japanese name for a deep-fried Potato Cake coated with ‘Panko’ Breadcrumbs, originally related to a French dish ‘Croquette’. A wide variety of ‘Korokke’ are available from stores in Japan. But, in Melbourne where I live, I have to make them when I want to eat them. It’s not hard to make, but …

    Pork ‘Nikujaga’ with Kombu (Kelp)

    ‘Nikujaga’ is the dish of ‘Niku’ (Meat) and ‘Jaga’ (Potato) cooked in sweet soy sauce flavoured broth. It is one of the most popular Japanese home-cooked dishes. Today I added Kombu (Kelp) to it.

    Sweet Potato & Peanuts with Miso Sauce

    This dish is a variation of my ‘Miso Peanuts & Tofu’. I replaced Tofu with steamed Sweet Potato today.

    Sweet Potatoes are often used for making cakes and pies, but ordinary Potatoes are not. I recently leaned that Potatoes are used for sweet cakes in many regions in Europe, so I tried.
