    Chicken Ketchup Rice

    On the other day, I wanted to cook ‘Omu-rice’ (Omelette Rice) for dinner. Then I had to cook 4 servings Ketchup flavoured fried rice, and that was not easy. Then I tried to cook all the fried rice ingredients in a rice cooker just like cooking ‘Takikomigohan’, a Japanese dish of Rice cooked with ingredients …

    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’ …

    Snow Peas, Edamame & Tuna Salad

    I had never eaten uncooked Snow Peas until I tried it in Australia. I instantly fell in love with the Australian juicy Snow Peas. If the Snow Peas in your country need to be cooked, just blanch them as they should be crunchy in this salad. I definitely won’t cook them. Makes 4 Servings Ingredients …

  • Okonomiyaki

    Oven-baked Okonomiyaki with Ham & Egg

    It takes time to cook ‘Okonomiyaki’, especially when you make many. When I cook it for whole family, I bake one large Okonomiyaki in the oven. Today’s Okonomiyaki is about 40 x 30cm. Such a jumbo Okonomiyaki can’t be flipped over, but I don’t need to to do so as I bake it in the …

    Don’t judge it by its colour. This soup is absolutely delicious! I first made this soup by adding some green vegetables to ‘My Mother’s Potato Soup’ to make it more nutritious.

    Do you know that sun-dried Shiitake are a great source of Vitamin D? They also have more Umami flavour.

If you are after the nutritious benefit, purchase fresh Shiitake and dry them under the direct …

    Canned Tuna & Peas Curry

    Nutritious and yummy meals can be made cheaply. To cook this curry, you only need 3 main ingredients, 1 small Canned Tuna, 1 Onion and 1 cup Frozen Peas. I use ‘Tuna in Springwater’ for this dish. If you use ‘Tuna in Brine’, you need to alter the amount of Soy Sauce because the Tuna …

    Smoked Salmon Takikomigohan

    My ‘Salmon Takikomigohan’ is very popular. But, on the other day, I found a bone in the dish even though I had checked Salmon fillets carefully. Many years ago, when my son was very young, he has got a fish bone stuck in his throat for three days, and it was a nightmare for us. …
