    Dried Mushroom ‘Okowa’ Glutinous Rice

    ‘Okowa’ is a Japanese dish of Glutinous Rice. ‘Okowa’ that is seasoned with Soy Sauce is probably my absolute favourite food. My mother cooks it by steaming, but I cook it using a rice cooker. It is the easiest way to cook ‘Okowa’, and the result is good enough if regular Rice is mixed with …

    Chestnuts & Dried Mushrooms Rice

    You can use any Dried Mushrooms, but I strongly recommend to use some Dried Porcini. Today I added Dried Mixed Forest Mushrooms as well. These Dried Mushrooms are available from most supermarkets in Melbourne where I live. Chestnuts might be hard to find. I have very sore hands and can’t peel Chestnuts, so I used …

    Carrot & Chikuwa Takikomigohan

    ‘Chikuwa’ is a Japanese tubular-shape fish cake. The other day I wanted to cook my favourite ‘Abura-age & Carrot Takikomigohan’, which I crave sometimes, but I didn’t have Abura-age (Fried Thin Tofu). I added Chikuwa instead, and it turned out really yummy. I added some Sesame Oil and I believe it was a good decision. …

    Japanese Curry Roux Chicken Rice

    This recipe can be a life-saver for busy parents. When my children were young and I was a very busy mum, I sometimes could not bother thinking about what to cook for dinner. One of my choices was Curry that I could cook with S&B Curry Roux Blocks as it was easy to prepare and …

    Soy Sauce Rice

    I like ‘Takikomigohan’, a dish of Rice that is cooked with other ingredients and all seasoning. I particularly love ‘Takikomigohan’ that is seasoned with Soy Sauce, and I sometimes crave it. When I don’t want to bother preparing other ingredients, I cook this ‘Soy Sauce Rice’. It’s just Rice, but cooked in Dashi Stock seasoned …

    Rice Cooker Lamb Pilaf

    Pilaf is usually cooked in a pan OR pot. This is my super easy rice cooker recipe. You don’t need to precook Onion and Garlic. Place them in the rice cooker’s inner pot first, then they will get slightly caramelised and make the dish delicious. Lamb is cooked in a frying pan separately and added …

  • Takikomigohan Zōsui (Rice Soup)

    Simple Rice Cooker Risotto

    This is the most basic Risotto that I cook using my rice cooker. The amount might be not enough for 2 servings. My husband could eat it all by himself easily. I usually add extra ingredients such as Mushrooms, Spinach, Peas, etc. If you want the texture of the Risotto wetter than it looks in …

  • Beans & Peas Takikomigohan

    Cuban Inspired Black Bean Rice

    This recipe has been inspired by a Cuban rice dish, ‘Arroz Congri’. I cooked it in my rice cooker just like Japanese ‘Takikomigohan’, so it is super easy to cook. The colour of the dish is supposed to be darker, but the liquid from the can of Black Beans that I used was not really …

    Rice Cooker Fried Rice

    Well… this dish is not fried, so I shouldn’t name it Fried Rice, but it is almost the same as typical Fried Rice. It is extremely easy to prepare if you have a rice cooker. You don’t need to stand in front of hot cooktop. Place everything in the rice cooker’s inner pot and press …
