    Teriyaki Chicken Chirashi-zushi

    ‘Chirashi-zushi’ is a type of Sushi and it is a kind of decorated rice salad. It is very popular in Japan. I often make it, but I have never made ‘Chirashi-zushi’ with Chicken. However, Teriyaki Chicken is my Aussie family’s favourite filling for Sushi Rolls. So, today I decided to make Teriyaki Chicken Chirashi-zushi for …

  • Donburi (Rice Bowl) Sukiyaki Vegetables

    Soy Meat Sukiyaki Don

    I tried to cook ‘Sukiyaki Don’ replacing Beef with Soy Meat (Soy Protein) and the result was too bland for me. Extra flavours are needed in the sauce. So I added Ginger, Sesame Oil and Chilli. The dish tastes much better and it still tastes like Sukiyaki. If you are Vegan, simply omit the Eggs. …

    Vegan Soy Meat Curry

    Mice type Soy Meat (Soy Protein) is perfect for my ‘Clean-Up-Fridge Curry’. I usually use minced Beef or Pork, but this is a really good Vegan alternative. My meat-loving husband would’t notice this is Soy Meat curry. The recipe is almost identical, but you need to add more liquid as Soy Meat is quite dry …

    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.

    Tempura Soba

    When you order ‘Tempura Soba’ at a restaurant in Japan, you will most likely have a few large Prawn Tempura placed on the Soba Noodles in hot soup.

    Prawn, Onion & Carrot ‘Kakiage’ Tempura

    ‘Kakiage’ is a type of Tempura made with a variety of chopped or thinly sliced Vegetables and Seafood. This is my favourite ‘Kakiage’ and probably my family’s favourite, too. I often double the amount of this recipe and cook a lot more than we can eat, then I freeze leftovers. ‘Kakiage’ can be used for …

    Scrambled Tofu, Veggies & Egg

    This traditional Japanese dish is called ‘Iri Dōfu’ (Scrambled Tofu) in Japan. It can be a vegetarian dish, but I would like to add Chicken. Momen Tofu or medium soft Tofu is traditionally used, but you must press it to remove excess water. I prefer Firm Tofu for this dish as I can use it …

    If you are tired of ordinary coleslaw and want something different, try this South Asian flavoured Cabbage Salad.
