    My Family’s Bolognese Sauce

    ‘Spaghetti Bolognese’ was my daughter’s favourite dish when she was a young child. This is the sauce I have been cooking for decades. I sometimes add extra ingredients such as Mushrooms, Chilli, Olives, etc. I use this sauce for Potato Chase Bake and Doria as well. Cook a large batch even though you need it …

    Skinless Pork Sausages

    We really don’t know what is in the store-bought sausages, do we? It would be good if I could make sausages at home knowing exactly what is in them. However, sausage making is not an easy task. I don’t have tools and the casings are not widely available. The solutions is making them skinless. Makes …

  • Beef Sukiyaki Tofu

    Beef Mince & Tofu in Sukiyaki Sauce

    One of my family’s favourite dinner menus is ‘Sukiyaki Don’. I often use minced Beef instead of thinly sliced Beef. Because it is easier as thinly sliced Beef is not commonly averrable where I live. This is a simple altered version of it. Tofu is the key ingredient. I always serve this dish with freshly …

  • Chicken Egg Sushi

    Soboro Sushi Rolls

    It takes time to prepare the fillings for traditional Sushi Rolls. I often prepare Carrot, Spinach, Egg, Shiitake, Fish or Chicken, Cucumber, and more. They all need to be prepared separately. It is very time consuming. But this filling is super easy to prepare. You cook everything together. It is a great filling for ‘Temaki-zushi’ …

    There is an old Japanese sweet called ‘Matsukaze’ (Wind in the Pines) that has hundreds of years history. And there is a Chicken Mince dish that looks like the sweet ‘Matsukaze’. This Chicken Mince dish is often prepared for the New Year celebration. I don’t have a large square pan, I bake it in the …

    ‘Nikujaga’ is the dish of ‘Niku’ (Meat) and ‘Jaga’ (Potato) cooked in sweet soy sauce flavoured broth. It is one of the most popular home cooking dishes in Japan, and I cook it very often. I use thinly sliced Beef, but ‘Niku’ can be other Meat. Thinly sliced Meat is most popular, but it can …

    Teriyaki Eggplant & Pork Mince

    This Pork Mince filling is almost same as Gyoza filling. I simply sandwiched it with Eggplant slices, then fried. My first attempt was not quite successful, because the Pork filling slipped out from Eggplant. You need to glue them so that they stay together. Flour would be a good glue. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients 250 …

    Soboro Mixed Inari-zushi

    In Japan, when we make Inari-zushi, that is Sushi Rice wrapped in seasoned Abura-age (Thin Fried Tofu), we often mix some extra ingredients with Sushi Rice. Common ingredients are hard to find where I live, so I mixed ‘Soboro’ made with Chicken Mince or Pork Mince. Makes 12 Pieces Ingredients 2 cups (180ml cup) Japanese …

    Fried Stuffed Lotus Root

    I often use minced Prawns for this dish, but I used Chicken Mince today. Pork Mince is also good. Frozen Lotus Root is available from most Asian grocery store if you can’t find fresh one. Thinner slices are more suitable. It’s much easier to cook than it looks. Why don’t you try it for a …

  • Chicken Tofu

    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 …

    Curry Stuffed Bread ‘Karee Pan’

    In Japan, there is a popular savoury bread called ‘Karee Pan’, that is deep-fried bread filled with Curry and coated with Bread Crumbs.
