    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.

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

    Marinated Fried Eggplant ‘Nambanzuke’

    I have shared my recipe for ‘Nanban-zuke’, which is a dish of marinated Fish. It is one of my Top 10 summer dishes. This dish is almost identical to the ‘Nanban-zuke’, but I used Eggplants instead of Fish. Eggplants are deep-fried and they become oily. And that’s why they taste so good after marinated in …
