    Simmered ‘Arame’ & Fried Tofu

    ‘Arame’ is a sea vegetable of Kombu (Kelp) family and its texture is softer than Kombu’s. My mother used to cook ‘Arame’ very frequently. It is more popular than Hijiki or Kombu where I grew up.

    My ‘Mabo Dofu Japanese Style’ is quite different from the authentic Chinese ‘Mapo Tofu’, but that’s what I have been eating and it is very easy to prepare.

    Chicken Mince in Abura-age (Thin Fried Tofu)

    I used to make this dish using Tofu as filling, but I like Chicken Mince version better. I wanted to add Hijiki (a sea vegetable) as well, but I haven’t found it for many years where I live. If you have it, add 1 tablespoon of it. Makes 6 pieces Ingredients 3 Abura-age (Thin Fried …

    Mochi in Abura-age (Thin Fried Tofu)

    There is a hot pot dish called ‘Oden’ in Japan. The popular ingredients of ‘Oden’ include Fishcakes, Daikon, Konnyaku (Konjac) and Boild Eggs, but my favourite is Abura-age (Thin Fried Tofu) bags that have Mochi inside. These Abura-age bags can be cooked in any flavoured soup of your choice, but I included a soup that …

    Simmered Daikon & Fried Tofu

    Daikon (White Radish) was on special at a local green grocer. I couldn’t resist to purchase some. This dish is one of the dishes I often cook. Today I cooked Daikon with Fried Tofu. Many Australians don’t cook radishes and they don’t know that radishes are delicious when softly simmered, stewed or even stir-fried. Makes …

    Gluten-free ‘Abura-age’ Gyoza

    If you can’t eat wheat flour and have given up eating Gyoza because of that, you might wish to try this alternative.

This recipe includes a very basic Pork filling, but you can find more Gyoza filling recipes …

    ’Kitsune’ means ‘Fox’ in Japanese. ‘Kitsune Udon’ can be literally translated as ‘Fox Udon’ but it has nothing to do with the foxes. No one knows why this Udon dish is called with its name. As a food, ‘Kitsune’ is ‘Abura-age’ (Fried Thin Tofu) that is seasoned and added to noodle dishes as a topping. …
