I may have to stop looking at this thread. Everybody’s homemade Japanese food looks so much better than 90% of the local restaurant food. Outstanding!!
You should! The most difficult part is to gather the ingredients.
Tororo Kombu onigiri, topping included smoked herring, kombu, and Umeboshi (preserved plum)
It worked perfectly with drier rice.
What’s the product surrounding the rice? I’m not sure I’ve seen it in the stores before
Truth! I’m mostly familiar with Japanese cuisine from dishes I have eaten in restaurants. Folks here are outshining most of that!
It is dried and shaved Kelp (seaweed). “Tororo Kombu are thin and long flakes made by shaving dried kombu that has been softened in vinegar.”
@BierMonk Is right. Actually I saw it in store and understood it was some kind of kelp, but no idea what to do with that. One can also use it in broth or miso soup. It tastes quite different from the green seaweed, it’s savoure, tart, thin and fragile.
@naf I may give Japanese food a try but in addition to having trouble finding the ingredients, I would also be lacking in plating talent.
@tomatotomato Most of the Japanese food around here is either hibachi or overwrought sushi rolls. Ugh.
Terrific, so glad it worked out - looks great!
Since this topic is going to close soon, might as well finish with Japanese Rare Cheesecake.
Here’s a video for it as well.
My son’s the same way
I like matcha, most of the matcha dessert I find the sweetness overwhelming. Your cheese cake looks good.
Are you from Japan?
Kitsune udon - simple udon noodle bowl with dashi, soy sauce, and mirin soup, narutomaki, marinated tofu puff, and green onion.
Just found this thread and I wanted to share this book which we acquired recently. It’s helping us up our snack game, though lots of frying involved. No pix to share sadly but we’ve been doing one recipe from this book per month and it’s a good reason to do okonomiyaki a lot more than I might otherwise have.
Zaru soba, cold soba noodles with dipping sauce. With some store bought frozen tempura, which I guess makes it a tenzaru soba. Also, takuan pickles, salad of arugula and tomato with Kewpie sesame dressing, and miso soup.
Omurice for lunch today - omelet over chicken fried rice, topped with some store bought Japanese style demi glace thinned out with a little water.
