Koinobori (こいのぼり) is carp-shaped wind socks traditionally flown on May 5th in Japan to celebrate "Tango no Sekku" (端午の節句), boy's festival, in honor of sons and in the hope that they will grow up healthy and strong.
However in 1948, the government renamed the day "Kodomo no Hi" (こどもの日), children's day, to respect children's personalities and to celebrate their happiness.
But we Japanese still celebrate "Tango no Sekku" on this day! If you come to Japan, you will find many foods and products represent Koinobori (carp)!
Product I used:
Hagoromo Foods Deco Furi 6 Colors Egg Flavor はごろもフーズ デコふり 6色 たまご風味
Koinobori Curry (Carp Deco Curry Rice)
Time: 10min + curry rice cooking time
Number of servings: N/A
curry of your choice
pink and green rice seasonings
Nori seaweed sheet
cooked broccolini or asparagus
cooked star-shaped carrots
1. Mix pink and green rice seasonings into each of two bowls of rice to make slightly pink and green rice. You don't want to add the seasonings too much since the rice is for curry.
2. Place the rice in plastic wrap and form the rice into carp shapes.
3. Spread curry of your choice on a plate.
4. Place cooked broccolini or asparagus to make a pole.
5. Place the carps along the pole.
6. Decorate the carps with sliced cheese and Nori seaweed sheet: eyes, gills, and scales.
7. Garnish with carrot stars to finish.
