How to Make Kamaage Udon (Marugame Inspired Recipe) | Japanese Cooking Video

Kamaage Udon is Udon served in a wooden bowl with some hot cooking water. You dip Udon into dipping sauce and eat with some toppings if you like. Tempura sides are perfect. If you have ever tried it at a restaurant (such as Marugame Udon Restaurant), you know it is pretty simple yet delicious.




I was not sure if I should get the wooden bowl to recreate it at home while plastic one is available. However, by serving it in a wooden bowl, I noticed it keeps Udon hot for a long while, looking good with a nice steam rising from it. It was fantastic and everyone liked it 😉 If you get a chance to get a wooden bowl, please try it out 💖

How to Make Kamaage Udon (Marugame Inspired Recipe)


Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients
4 frozen Udon noodles *I used TableMark (Katokichi), any brand is OK
Tsuketsuyu (Udon dipping sauce)
* 300ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 4 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 4 tbsp. soy sauce
condiments of your choice (chopped green onions/chopped long onions/grated ginger/white sesame seeds/Tenkasu crunchy bits of deep fried flour-batter/etc...)
Tempura if you like

Directions:
1. In a pot, bring Dashi broth, Mirin, and soy sauce to a boil. You can also microwave until it comes to a boil.
2. Bring water to a boil in a large pot, if your pot is small cook Udon 1 serving at a time, cook Udon on medium high heat as directed on its package. (Cooking time was 1 minute for TableMark frozen Udon) You shake the noodles in boiling water then stop the heat when they are separated.
3. Using the edge of a serving bowl, slide in the noodles to drain water when you serve.
4. Add some hot cooking water.
5. Serve with Tsuketsuyu (dipping sauce), condiments, and Tempura if you like.

I love using Kayanoya Dashi. Vegan/Vegetarian people can use Kombu or Vegetable Dashi broth for the dipping sauce 👍

Light and Crispy Kakiage Tempura (Japanese Vegetable Fritters) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Kakiage is Japanese vegetable fritters, sometimes with seafood. Vegetable strips are the main ingredients. Leftover vegetables are okay! Vegan/Vegetarian people can use Kombu Dashi broth for the dipping sauce 👍




Using round aluminum foil molds, you can deep fry the vegetable strips with less batter coated. In this way Kakiage becomes very light and crispy 😋


You can serve it with rice or Udon noodles for example, as a side dish. Or, you can put on top of rice or Udon noodles to make a bowl dish. It is up to you 😉

---------------------------------

Light and Crispy Kakiage Tempura (Japanese Vegetable Fritters Recipe)


Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 4 pieces of 8cm (3inch) Kakiage

Ingredients
100g (3.5oz) onion slices
30g (1oz) carrot strips
30g (1oz) whole kernel corn
--Tempura Batter
* 1/2 cup ice-cold water
* 1/2 cup all purpose flour
--Tentsuyu (Tempura dipping sauce)
* 100ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 2 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 2 tbsp. soy sauce
vegetable oil for deep frying

Directions:
1. Cut aluminum foil about 30cm (12inch) long, fold it into quarters lengthwise. Make a ring then fold the ends together to make 8cm (3inch) circle. (please see the video)
2. Place the cut vegetables in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp. of all purpose flour from Tempura Batter, then coat evenly with your hands.
3. Tempura Batter: Mix ice-cold water and all purpose flour. Make sure to use ice-cold water not to activate the gluten. The batter should be lumpy, do not over-mix.
4. Add the vegetables then toss lightly.
5. Heat 5cm (2inches) of oil in a pan to 170C (340F). Place one or two aluminum foil rings (depending on the size of the pan), then put 1/4 of the vegetables in each ring little by little to form into circles. When the bottoms are cooked, remove the rings, flip them over and cook thoroughly until crisp golden. Then drain well. (Do not deep fry too many at once.)
6. Tentsuyu: In a pan, bring Dashi broth, Mirin, and soy sauce to a boil. You can also microwave until it comes to a boil. **
7. You can eat with salt, with Tentsuyu, or serve on top of rice with Tentsuyu to make Tendon (Tempura rice bowl), etc... it is up to you.

**For tentsuyu, you can use Yamasa's Konbu Tsuyu (3 times concentrated Konbu kelp seaweed soup stock). You just need to dilute it with hot water as directed on the package. This product is very convenient and it is available overseas!

How to Make Basic Inarizushi (Inari Sushi) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

In this video, I will show you how to make very basic Inarizushi with plain Sushi rice. Easy yet delicious, perfect for party, picnic, or any kind of event!




Inarizushi (Inari Sushi) is Sushi rice stuffed in tasty Aburaage (Fried Tofu pouches).


In Japan, Inarizushi can be widely found at restaurants, supermarkets, conbini (convenience stores), and etc... Sometimes store-bought ones are too sweet but this one is very mild. Homemade is the best 😉

Dashi Broth (Kayanoya Dashi) I used:


---------------------------------

How to Make Basic Inarizushi


Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1hr + cooling time
Number of servings: 20 pieces

Ingredients:
660g (1.5lb.) cooked Japanese rice (short-grain rice)
A
* 3 tbsp. rice vinegar
* 3 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tsp. salt
10 square Aburaage (deep-fried tofu pouches)
B
* 4 tbsp. soy sauce
* 4 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 4 tbsp. sugar
* 400ml Dashi broth
4 tbsp. roasted white sesame seeds

Directions:
1. Place the Aburaage on a cutting board and trace the Aburaage with a chopstick to make it easy to open. Cut into half and open. If you are using square Aburaage (deep-fried tofu pouches) cut diagonally into half to get 2 right-angled triangles. If you are using rectangular Aburaage, cut into half to get 2 squares.
2. Put Aburaage in boiling water for a minute to remove the excess oil. Drain in a strainer and wash with warm water. Stack up 3-4 pieces at a time, then press with your hands to drain well.
3. Put B and Aburaage in a pot, then bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and cover with an Otoshibuta or a wooden drop-lid (you can substitute it with with a sheet of aluminum foil and use any small lid or a plate as a weight if needed) and simmer for 20 minutes. Stop the heat and let them cool completely for a few hours or overnight is OK.
4. Make Sushi vinegar by mixing A (or use store-bought Sushi vinegar). Add the Sushi vinegar while the rice is hot and slice through the rice using a rice paddle to separate the grains. Mix sesame seeds in the Sushi rice. Divide the rice into 20 equal portions. Wet your hands and make small balls of Sushi rice.
5, Take a piece of Aburaage and lightly press with your hand to remove the excess liquid. Stuff a ball of Sushi rice and close the pouch. *Please see the video for details.

Chicken Sukiyaki (Torisuki)


Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients
350g (12.5oz.) chicken thigh
200g (7oz.) Yaki-Dofu (grilled tofu)
300g (10.5oz.) Shirataki (translucent Konnyaku noodles)
4 shiitake mushrooms *you can also add Enoki, Shimeji, Maitake, etc...
4 long green onions
1 carrot
200g (7oz.) Shungiku (garland chrysanthemum) *Watercress can be a substitute
cooking oil
Warishita (Sukiyaki sauce seasonings)
* 100ml Kombu broth (or water)
* 100ml Sake
* 100ml Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 100ml soy sauce
* 4 tbsp. sugar
udon noodles if desired
fresh raw eggs if desired

Directions:
1. Lightly sprinkle the chicken with Sake, salt and pepper and leave for 5 minutes to remove the bad smell. Cut yaki-dofu into bite sized pieces. Boil shirataki 2-3 minutes in order to remove dirt. Remove stems and cut shiitake mushrooms in half. Chop long green onions into 7cm (2.5inches) pieces. Slice carrot with peeler as much as you want. Separate shungiku leaves and stalks, cut leaves into bite-sized pieces and cut stalks diagonally.
2. Heat cooking oil in the pot and cook the long onions and skin-side of chicken until crisp golden (long onion gives nice flavor). Chicken doesn’t have to be cooked thoroughly because it is going to be simmered later. Slice the chicken into bite-size pieces.
3. In the same pot, put vegetables, chicken, and Warishita (Sukiyaki sauce) and simmer on medium for about 10 min until everything is done.
4. If desired, dip sukiyaki into beaten fresh raw eggs to eat!

You can either cook Sukiyaki at the table or in the kitchen and eat at the table on a portable stove.
You can add udon if desired. It goes great with Sukiyaki!
The next day, you can simmer the leftover broth with beaten eggs and make rice bowls. yummy!!!

You need only 4 ingredients! Using a bread machine and a pasta maker machine, you can make silky-smooth and chewy Udon noodles in a minute!!! (Any bread machine is OK if it can knead)


FYI: Perfectly kneaded dough is the KEY to activate the gluten in the flour and gives the noodles the silky-smooth and chewy texture. This is why we used a bread machine. My mom used to make udon like this when we lived in Jordan many many years ago 😉Using hands or feet is pretty much a work if you want to serve udon quickly for family.

If you don't have a bread machine, you can put the dough in a plastic bag, wrap in a towel, and knead with your feet for about 5 minutes until smooth. If you use your hands (palms) it may take for about 15 minutes.

Homemade Udon Noodles from Scratch


Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 15min + 2hrs resting time
Number of servings: n/a

Ingredients
4 cups (500g) all purpose flour
1 cup (240ml) water
1 tbsp. salt
1 egg white

Directions:
((Using a machine))
1. Put all the ingredients in a bread machine and knead.
2. Place the dough in a plastic bag and rest for about 2 hours.
3. Divide it into 5, roll out the dough and put through the pasta maker machine at the dial to the widest setting (usually setting number 1). Feed it through the rollers.
4. Then begin rolling it thinner, by turning the dial to the next narrowest setting (most likely number 2).
5. Attach the noodle-cutting attachment to the pasta machine (3.5mm or 6mm is perfect for Udon), sprinkle the dough lightly with flour, and feed it into the cutting attachment.
6. Cook the Udon in boiling water for 10 minutes. Wash the noodles very well with running water if you want to serve cold Udon.
7. Serve the udon with shredded Nori seaweed sheet, wasabi, chopped onions, and Tsuyu (dipping sauce). You can also serve with Tempura! Yummy!

((by hands or feet))
1. Mix water and salt very well to make salted water.
2. Add water little by little then quickly mix with your hand until the dough crumbles. Make sure water is mixed evenly. When you see a lump, you want to crumble it.
3. Form it into a ball.
4. Knead the dough for 15 minutes using your palms, just like you make a bread, 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. You can put the dough in a plastic bag and step it on with your feet for 5 minutes, this allows you to get much more pressure on the dough to activate the gluten.
5. Put it in a plastic bag, rest the dough for 2 hours at a room temperature.
6. Roll out the dough into a thin rectangle, sprinkle lightly with flour, then fold it into thirds, slice it into 0.2 inch (5mm) or as you desire.
7. Cook the Udon in boiling water for 10 minutes. Wash the noodles very well with running water if you want to serve cold Udon.
8. Serve the udon with shredded Nori seaweed sheet, wasabi, chopped onions, and Tsuyu (dipping sauce). You can also serve with Tempura! Yummy!

((Udon Dashi))
Boil 600ml Dashi broth (made with Dashi powder is ok), 2 tsp. Soy sauce, 1 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake), ½ tsp. Salt in a pot.

Tempura Moriawase (Assorted Seafood and Vegetable Tempura)


Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: 4 or more

Ingredients
vegetables of your choice (Okra, Maitake mushrooms, Kabocha (Japanese squash), sweet corn kernels, grape tomatoes etc...)
seafood of your choice (prawns, fish, squid, etc...)
--Tempura Batter
* 1 cup ice water
* 1 cup (120g) all purpose flour
--Tentsuyu (tempura dipping sauce)
* 200ml dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 4 tbsp. mirin (sweet sake)
* 4 tbsp. soy sauce
vegetable oil
grated daikon radish
salt and sudachi (or lemon) if desired

Directions:
1. Prepare vegetables and seafood before frying. I will explain how to for shrimps: Wash, peel (leave the tails) and devein the shrimps. Make 4-5 incisions (about 1/3 depth) in their stomach side to straighten them. Then cut off the tip of the tail and remove the water inside to avoid splatters when deep frying.
2. Tentsuyu: In a pan, bring dashi broth, mirin, and soy sauce to a boil.**
3. Tempura Batter: Beat an egg and add ice water to make them 200ml liquid. (Be sure to use ice water not to activate the gluten) Pour the mixture into a large bowl, sift flour in and mix lightly. The batter should be lumpy, do not over-mix.
4. Heat vegetable oil in a deep pan to 180~190C (340~350F).
5. Lightly dip the ingredients in the batter and fry them immediately until golden and crisp. Drain tempura on a rack or a sheet of clean paper towel. (Do not fry too many at once.)
6. Serve with tentsuyu and grated daikon radish. Or salt and sudachi (or lemon) is good, too!

Tempura is best served hot!

**For tentsuyu, you can use Yamasa's Konbu Tsuyu (3 times concentrated Konbu kelp seaweed soup stock). You just need to dilute it with hot water as directed on the package. This product is very convenient and it is available overseas!
