How to make Japanese omlet(egg roll) .There are sweet kind and salty one but my favourite is definately sweet version. You could use it as a filling for sushi roll too.

to make big 2 rolls,
8eggs
4 tbsp sugar
110ml of dashi
1 tbsp of soy sauce(got to be kikkoman or any kinds of Japanese products)

vegetable oil to bake

Mix everything well .(apart from vegetable oil)
Heat the pan with a little bit of oil and pour the mixture for a bit and spread,
when it's cooked 80%,roll it and add some more mixture and do the same (a bit of oil,pour the mixture,roll,pour the mixture,roll)again and again and again until the mixture 's gone half .And for the next batch,do the same!
It's nice to have when it's hot but it's lovely to eat when it's cool too.

I'm using the traditional pan just for making egg rolls but it's absolutely fine to use normal pan.

Steamed aubergine with ponzu

Look at this lovely bowl !I bought it at the pottery studio of Reiko Kaneko in Stoke the other day.Absolutely beautiful piece of art.Nice potteries motive me to cook beautiful food and they make the food look really special.That's the magic of nice potteries I believe.Today I steamed some aubergine and marinated with homemade ponzu(Japanese citrus fruit and soy sauce vinegary condiment) and sesami seeds.My favourite Delicious and healthy summer dish.Yummy.

Hijiki and fu

e0194046_20264825.jpg



Hijiki is a sort of seaweeds .High in iron and calcium and low calories.Fu is made out of gluten comes from strong flour so perhaps it may not be good for people doing gluten free diet but it's one of essencial protein sources for macrobiotic people and also my granny and auntie were always cooking something with it.I cooked these 2 ingredients together with soy sauce ,fish stock and some agave syrup and sesami seeds.I love to eat this dish with some steamed brown rice and their nutrition is almost perfect according to macrobiotic's idea. I'm using some fish stock to give depth to the flavor so I'm breaking the rule in terms of macrobiotic method actually but my point is to enjoy and being healthy so who cares!!

gyoza(Japanese dumpling)

Gyoza is a dish which is in our family's top 5 , but ever since we moved to England,we have started to make it from scratch because the gyoza pastry that you could get at the Asian ingredients shop is not so nice .My eldest son is around today so we teamed up and made lots of gyozas!!

Shoga-yaki

e0194046_1974389.jpg


This dish is called Shoga-yaki. "Shoga" means ginger and " Yaki" means roast ,grill or saute.Yep we don't have so many verbs for those meanings in Japanese because we love to eat raw fish !!

So if I title it in English ,I would say sauteed pork with ginger and soy.Japanese soy sauce is something special I believe.It has got depth of taste and full of flavour.

I'm quite flexible when it comes to using substitute ingredients for everyday cooking .
However,never ever substitute other country's soy sauce for Japanese soy sauce If you are cooking Japanese dish.It 'll be turning into a totally different dish.It got to be Japanese soy sauce such as Kikkoman .

Shoga-yaki is one of the best popular dishes in Japan.
If you want to try it, check on the catering page of my website.
