Kawaii Animal Onigiri Rice Balls - Video Recipe

You can use plastic wrap to form the rice into animal shapes. However, using the molds saves time ;) Great tool when you have a lot of Onigiri to prepare!

Just press some cooked Japanese rice into the mold.
Decorate with Nori seaweed sheet, ham, cheese, and/or Kinshi Tamago (shredded egg crepes).

Stir-Fried Dried Squid and Vegetables (NO Knife! Kitchen Shears) - Video Recipe

We received some dried squids when we visited the nearby shrine for our son's Omiyamairi (the first shrine visit) and my darling's Yakubarai (ceremony to drive away evil spirits). I decided to make a dish out of them.

It turned out to a very tasty and delicious stir-fried dish, goes great with white rice. Oyster-sauce flavor, with a hint of chive is obviously addictive. Very filling with lots of bean sprouts ;)

You don't need a knife but use kitchen scissors / kitchen shears!

Of course, you can use regular squids.

FYI: Hatsumiya-Mairi (初宮参り) or Omiyamairi (お宮参り) is one of the traditional celebration events for Japanese babies. Whenever a newborn is over a month old, we bring the baby to a nearby shrine for a greeting (giving the invocation).

Okakiage (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma Inspired Crispy Fried Chicken) - Video Recipe

"Okaki" is rice crackers and "Age" means deep fried.

I received a request for Okakiage, which appears on Manga: "Shokugeki no Soma (Food Wars)". Cod fish was used in its episode; however, I used chicken which is familiar to everyone.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUjiBXPRea0

Of course you can use any rice crackers~ ;)



---------------------------------
Okakiage (Crispy Fried Chicken)

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
500g (1.1lb.) chicken thigh with skin
1/2 tsp. salt
100g (3.5oz.) Kaki no tane (Rice Crackers)
vegetable oil for deep frying
lemon wedges

Directions:
1. Remove the skin of chicken if you don't like, cut into bite-size pieces, then season with salt.
2. Remove the peanuts from Kaki no tane. Place them in a Ziploc bag and break into small pieces. *You can use a food processor if you have.
3. Place it in a flat container and coat the chicken. Deep fry them in oil at 170C (338F) for 5~6 minutes, until they float up to the surface.
4. Drain well and serve on a dish with lemon wedges.

Lemon is a must! It makes the chicken very tasty and delicious. Of course ketchup goes good, too~.

Slice Kamaboko about 1cm thick. Peel the pink part leaving about 2cm of the end. Make 2cm cut in the center. Put the end through the hole.

孔雀 (Kujyaku/Peacock)
Slice Kamaboko about 5mm thick. Make 2mm slices leaving 5mm of the ends. Fold each in the same direction.

Like you eat Sashimi, you can eat Kamaboko with Soy Sauce and Wasabi :)

How do you like your Tamagoyaki?! Sweet or Savory?!

Both flavors can be a great side dish for Bento lunch box.

Tamagoyaki

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 15min
Number of servings: 2-3 (6 pieces)

Ingredients:
((Savory Dashi Flavor: store-bought seasoning))
3 eggs
2 tsp. Yamaki Kappo Shiro Dashi (White Dashi)
2 tbsp. water
((Savory Dashi Flavor: from scratch))
3 eggs
3 tbsp. Dashi broth (you can use Dashi powder to make it)
1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tsp. sugar
a pinch of salt
((Sweet Flavor))
3 eggs
1 tbsp. soy milk/milk/plain yogurt
1 tbsp. sugar
1/3 tsp. salt

Directions:
1. Beat eggs in a bowl, add the seasonings and mix well.
2. Heat cooking oil in a Tamagoyaki Nabe (rectangular omelette pan), pour a thin layer of egg mixture in the pan and spread over the surface. Cook until half done, roll up the egg, and move it to one end. Pour in another thin layer of egg mixture and let it flow under the rolled egg also. Cook until half done and again roll up the egg. Repeat this until all the mixture is gone.
3. Wrap the rolled egg while hot in a bamboo sushi roll mat (or plastic wrap) to even out the shape. Allow it to cool and cut it into bite-sized pieces.

For both flavor, eat with a few drops of soy sauce if you like.
