Nagashi Somen (At-Home Fun Flowing Noodles Party Rainbow LED Machine) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Somen is perfect refreshing food for hot and humid summer season 🎐




Sōmen (素麺) is very thin Japanese noodles made of wheat flour. The noodles are usually served cold in summer with a dashi flavored tasty dipping sauce called Mentsuyu (めんつゆ).

My daughter requested me to make Nagashi Somen (Flowing Somen). Two years ago (when she was 3) she had a chance to do it at Kindergarten. Noodles flowing in a bamboo pipe, you need to catch the noodles with chopsticks then dip in a cup of noodle sauce to eat. Sadly not because of COVID-19, this event is gradually removed from schools. Anyway, we can still enjoy it at home 😋 Kids enjoyed it and ate well 👍💕 BTW, I asked my daughter if she needs a machine like a long water slide, then my daughter chose this one and it was pretty fun!!! Good choice 💡

Directions:
((Somen Dipping Sauce))
In a pot, bring Dashi broth, Mirin, and soy sauce to a boil. You can also microwave until it comes to a boil. Cool in the fridge until ready to serve.

Basic Stuffed Cabbage Rolls | Japanese Home Cooking Video Recipe

Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls (we call Roll Kyabetsu) is typical Japanese home cooked main dish that everyone wants to remember. It goes perfect with white rice 😋




I will share with you the very basic simple recipe. Try this first. Then arrange it in the way you like by adding or changing the ingredients 😉

TIPS: Use a pot that fits the cabbage rolls tightly (put the cabbage scraps to fill the openings), then you don't have to worry about the rolling technique. They won't move and open while cooking 💡


Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Japanese Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

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

Basic Cabbage Rolls (One of the BEST Japanese Home Cooking Recipes)


Difficulty: Medium
Time: 1hr
Number of servings: 8 pieces

Ingredients
340g (12oz) ground beef and pork mixture *any kind of ground meat is ok
1 (200g/7oz) minced onion
1 cabbage (8 nice leaves or more)
1 consommé cube *any bouillon cube is ok
1 tbsp. cooking oil
salt and pepper
nutmeg *if you have
parsley flakes
ketchup *if you like

Directions:
1. Carefully peel up to 16 nice cabbage leaves. Place them on a microwavable dish, cover lightly with plastic wrap, then microwave on medium (600W) for 5 minutes. You can boil in a large pot until soft and drain as well. Shave the core to make it flat if it is too thick.
2. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan, cook minced onion until tender. Add half the amount of ground meat and cook until no longer pink, season with salt and pepper, then transfer it into a large bowl to cool.
3. When the meat is cold enough to handle, add the rest of the ground meat, 1/2 tsp. salt, pepper, and nutmeg and knead well with your hands. Divide it into 8 portions.
4. Place the meat mixture on a cabbage leaf, then roll up securely. If leaves are small overlap small cabbage leaves (2 or 3 leaves) together then wrap.
5. Use a pot that fits the cabbage rolls tightly. Place the cabbage rolls and put the cabbage scraps to fill the openings. Make sure they don't move while cooking.
6. Break the consommé cube in quarters and put them on top, place bay leaves, pour 1 cup (240ml) of water, cover, and cook on medium low for 30 minutes.
7. Place the cabbage rolls on serving dishes. Season the broth with salt and pepper then pour over the cabbage rolls. You can thicken the broth with slurry (1 tbsp. starch diluted with 2 tbsp. water) to make a thick sauce if you like. You can serve with ketchup if you like (many kids like to eat in this way). Sprinkle with parsley flakes to finish.

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 Prepare Sushi Rice / Shari (Recipe) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Here I will share with you the proportion of ingredients to make Sushi rice. You can adjust the amount of vinegar and sugar to your taste depending on the toppings. Apple cider vinegar is a tasty alternative 👍 


Apple cider vinegar helps boost your immune system 😉



Sushi-oke (a wooden bowl for Sushi rice) is not necessary. If you don't have it, you can use a little larger bowl.

FYI 1: Sushi Rice prepared for Sushi is called "すしめし Sushi-Meshi". When the rice is formed into a small oval shape for Nigiri, it is then called "シャリ Shari".

FYI 2: Sushi rice is perfect for Nigirizushi (hand-pressed Sushi), Temakizushi (Sushi hand rolls), Chirashizushi (scattered Sushi), Makizushi (Sushi rolls), etc...

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.

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 😉

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.
