Homemade Dinner Rolls (Tear 'n' Share Bread) - Video Recipe

Dinner Rolls (aka Tear 'n' Share Bread) is going viral in Japan ;)


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKOS77Udyn4

Perfect for upcoming holiday events!!!



---------------------------------
Dinner Rolls

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 2hrs or more
Number of servings: 18cm (7inch) square cake pan

Ingredients:
280g (9.9oz.) bread flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. dry yeast
1 tsp. salt
180ml milk *room temperature
3 tbsp. unsalted butter *room temperature

Directions:
((Kneading))
1. You want all the ingredients at room temperature.
2. In a large bowl, place bread flour, sugar, salt, dry yeast, and salt. Keep the dry yeast away from the salt as the salt will kill the dry yeast.
3. Gradually mix in milk, use your hand to mix together until formed. Transfer the dough to the counter and knead until sticky and well formed.
4. Add butter, stretch the dough for a few times using your palms, fold it in half, turn it around (90C), and stretch again. Repeat and knead until smooth, without adding any extra flour for 10-15 minutes). The dough should be very elastic which when stretched becomes almost translucent.
((1st Proving / Proofing / Rising))
5. Lightly oil a large bowl. Form the dough into a ball and place it in the bowl seam side down. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for 30-60 minutes or until it has doubled or tripled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
6. While proofing, grease the pan with some oil or butter, OR line with parchment paper.
((Knock-Back & Bench Time / Resting))
7. Place the dough onto a floured surface and punch out the air with your palm.
8. Divide it into 16 equal pieces using a bench scraper or a knife. Quickly form them into balls.
9. Place them on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and rest for 15 minutes. The dough is surprised because you punched, so please let them rest for a while before you start shaping.
((Shaping))
10. Form the dough again into balls and place it in the square pan.
((2nd Proving / Proofing / Rising))
11. Cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for about 30 minutes or until they have doubled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
12. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F).
((Baking))
13. Bake at 180C (350F) for about 20 minutes or more.
14. Remove from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool.

* To keep the surface of the dough from drying out, a wet towel is okay but plastic wrap is easier!

How to Make Rilakkuma Avocado Cheeseburger - Video Recipe

Very easy and cute idea to enjoy your lunch or snack :D


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9R7QnB3BXqo

I used 100% beef, avocado, and cheese, but the filling can be your choice!!!



---------------------------------
Rilakkuma Avocado Cheeseburger

Difficulty: Patience
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 2

Ingredients:
250g (8.8oz.) ground beef
1 sliced avocado
2 sliced cheddar cheese
2 sliced onions
2 sliced tomatoes
lettuce
1 tsp. salt
black pepper
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
hamburger buns
frankfurter (sausage)
sliced cheese
Nori seaweed sheet

Directions:
1. Put ground beef, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in a bowl, and mix well by hand until all ingredients are combined and smooth. Divide it into half, then form each into flat and round shape, little bit larger than the hamburger buns (because they shrink when they are cooked). In a frying pan or on a BBQ grill, cook the hamburger steaks and sliced onions to desired doneness.
2. Slice the hamburger buns and toast them in a frying pan or a BBQ grill. Place lettuce, sliced tomato, hamburger steak, sliced cheddar cheese, sliced onion, and avocado between the hamburger buns.
3. Make Rilakkuma's ears with boiled sausage and sliced cheese, then attach them with toothpicks. Make eyes, nose, and mouth with sliced cheese and Nori sheet.

It is slightly salty, so it is up to you to eat with ketchup!

How to Make NO EGG Japanese-Style Pão de Queijo (Mochi Cheese Balls Recipe) - Video Recipe

Pão de Queijo is Brazilian cheese bread.

100ml~ milk

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F).

3. Add cooking oil and parmesan cheese, then mix well until combined. *you can add a bit more milk if the dough doesn't come together. *adding nuts, sesame seeds, spices, or herbs is good, too
4. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces using a bench scraper or a knife, then roll them into balls.

3. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces using a bench scraper or a knife. Flatten out the dough with a rolling pin. Place the filling, pull and pinch the dough to seal like making a dumpling. (You can put water along the edge of the dough if it is too dry to seal.)
4. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan. Place the buns, then cook on medium for 1 minute. Add 180ml water, cover and steam the buns on med-low for 8~9 minutes until cooked.
5. Uncover, add a dash of sesame oil, and cook on high heat until the water is gone and crisp.

How to Make Sushi Burrito - Video Recipe

My darling was reading a newspaper the other day and found "Sushi Burrito" is very popular overseas.

Well… we don't have it in Japan and I never tried it, so I thought it is very weird. BUT my recipe turned out amazing XD


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1qtIkpVu9Q

Sushi rice gives perfect appetizing flavor over all!!!



It is also perfect for Setsubun (Feb. 3rd)!
http://createeathappy.blogspot.jp/2012/01/lucky-eho-maki-salmon-avocado-alasca.html

The lucky direction of the year 2018 is south‐southeast a little bit right. (2018年 平成30年の恵方は 南南東やや右). If you eat Eho-Maki facing in that direction it will bring you a good luck. But just remember you have to close your eyes and eat all without speaking! You can speak after you complete it ;)

Give it a try!!!

How to Make Yaki Karē Pan (Baked Japanese Curry Bread) - Video Recipe

Thick leftover curry is perfect for Karē Pan filling!
I recommend this Keema Curry :)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFXP8eIESv8

Please watch 0:30-2:49 for the basic bread dough.



---------------------------------
Yaki Karē Pan (Baked Japanese Curry Bread)

Difficulty: Medium
Time: 90min-120min
Number of servings: 8

Ingredients:
200g (7.0oz.) bread flour
20g (0.7oz.) butter
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. dry yeast
100ml warm water *30C/86F
20g (0.7oz.) beaten egg
1/2 tsp. salt
A
* 150g (5.3oz.) leftover curry *retort-packed one is OK
* 1 chopped boiled egg
* 25g (0.9oz.) pizza cheese
4 sausages
beaten egg
Panko (bread crumbs)
olive oil if you like

Directions:
((Kneading))
1. You want all the ingredients at room temperature.
2. Mix warm water, salt and beaten egg together.
3. In a large bowl, place bread flour, butter, sugar, and dry yeast. Keep the dry yeast away from butter as the salt (in the butter) will kill the dry yeast.
4. Gradually mix in the warm water mixture. Use your hand to mix together until formed.
5. Transfer the dough to the counter, stretch the dough for a few times using your palms, fold it in half, turn it around (90C), and stretch again. Repeat and knead until smooth, without adding any extra flour for 10-15 minutes). The dough should be very elastic which when stretched becomes almost translucent.
((1st Proving / Proofing / Rising))
6. Lightly oil a large bowl. Form the dough into a ball and place it in the bowl seam side down. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for 30-60 min or until it has doubled or tripled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
((Finger Test))
7. Coat your finger in flour and poke the dough. If the hole stays, it's ready. If the dough springs back, it needs to proof more. If the dough shrinks, it is over proofed. In this case, you'd better flatten out and make a pizza…
((Knock-Back & Bench Time / Resting))
8. Place the dough onto a floured surface and punch out the air with your palm.
9. Divide it into 8 equal pieces using a bench scraper or a knife. Quickly form them into balls.
10. Place them on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and rest for 10 minutes. The dough is surprised because you punched, so please let them rest for a while before you start shaping.
---Up to here, please watch the Burger Buns video (0:30-2:49)---
((Shaping))
11. Cut sausages in half diagonally. Mix A very well. If the curry is too runny, simmer it down until it becomes thick, then cool completely before you use.
12. Flatten out the dough with your hand. Place the curry mixture and sausage, pull and pinch the dough to seal like making a dumpling. Make sure you don't pinch it with curry, otherwise it won't stick together.
13. Dip in beaten egg, and coat with Panko.
((2nd Proving / Proofing / Rising))
14. Place rolls seam-side down on the baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for 20-30 min or until they have doubled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
15. Preheat the oven to 200C (392F).
((Baking))
16. Sprinkle with olive oil if you like.
17. Bake at 200C (392F) for about 10 minutes. OR Deep fry in oil at 170C (338F) for about 5 minutes until golden brown.

* To keep the surface of the dough from drying out, a wet towel is okay but plastic wrap is easier!

* This recipe is for 8, so make 4 Kare Pan and 4 Ham and Corn Buns to enjoy 2 flavors at once!
