Daikon Mochi (Japanese-style Chinese Turnip Cake 日式萝卜糕) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Crisp outside, moist and chewy inside, coated with addictive sweet soy glaze, wrapped with Nori seaweed sheet, just like Isobeyaki 🍘 Mouthwatering 🤤




If you have tried my Imo Mochi (Potato Rice Cakes) recipe, this Daikon Mochi turns out a bit smaller with almost the same amount of ingredients. But don't worry it is because Daikon radish contains more water! Daikon Mochi is juicy and easier to eat than Imo Mochi. Kids ate well 😉 Please try both and see which one you like 👍

Basic Chahan (Japanese Fried Rice 炒饭) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

In Japan, we make Chahan (fried rice) at home using leftover ingredients in the fridge 😋


I hope this very basic recipe will give you an idea to make your fried rice 👍



TIPS: Adding rice at room temperature makes rice drier (not too sticky). Hot or cold is not recommended. To make your rice drier, cook 2 servings at once. Too much rice makes the fried rice moist and sticky.

Cooked spinach seasoned with soy sauce is NOT Ohitashi. Soaking into Dashi Soy Sauce is Ohitashi 👍

Spinach Ohitashi (Japanese Spinach Salad Side Dish Recipe)


Difficulty: VERY EASY
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
200g (7oz.) Spinach
salt
* 2 tbsp. Dashi broth
* 1&1/2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
* 1 tsp. Mirin (Sweet Sake) *1/3 tsp. sugar is OK
Katsuobushi (bonito flakes)

Directions:
1. Cut off the root of the stem and make a cross cut (if the stem is dirty), then wash. In this way you can wash away soil easily but if your spinach is clean then you can simply wash.
2. Boil water in a large pot. Add a pinch of salt in the water (salt removes oxalic acid - bitter taste, and makes the spinach nice and green).
2. Add spinach in the boiling water from the stem side.
3. Boil spinach for about 15~30 seconds. Drain and wash with running water to cool. Squeeze the spinach to remove excess water (use paper towel if you have).
4. Cut into 1.5 inch (4cm) long pieces.
5. Mix Dashi broth, Soy Sauce, and Mirin, then soak spinach for a while.
6. Serve on a dish, garnish with Katsuobushi (bonito flakes) to finish.
