RECIPES - Japanese

With a rich history, there is so much more to Japanese food than the commonly known Sushi rolls, Sashimi and Miso soup. Japanese food includes dishes such as delicious Soba and Udon noodles, crispy Tempura prawns and veggies, smoky Yakitori barbeque and even traditional Japanese Wagashi and Mochi sweets. While it is certainly not a simple task to work your way through that delicious Tonkotsu, it is definitely not a daunting job, either. Asian Inspirations introduces a world of authentic Japanese flavours, dishes and recipes that go far beyond Sushi and Sashimi. Discover tried-and-tested recipes for hotpots and uncover the secret to perfect homemade Ramen. The best and most authentic Japanese recipes await you.

Tonkotsu Ramen

Tonkotsu Ramen

As the old saying goes, “good things take time”, and the Tonkotsu Ramen certainly lives up to that billing. The creamy and flavourful broth of this dish from the Japanese prefecture of Fukuoka alone is certainly worth its time in preparation.

Chanko Nabe

Chanko Nabe

Chanko nabe is a kind of stew or hot pot known as the original sumo food. Despite sumos being known for their huge statures, the chanko nabe itself is a well-balanced meal, but the sumo wrestlers eat it in such vast quantities that it does pack on the kilos. There is no fixed recipe for the chanko nabe; you can add beef, salmon, pork or anything you like. If you’re looking for a hearty meal this winter, it’s hard to go past the comfort of chanko nabe – just be sure to eat it in moderation!

Awase Dashi

Awase Dashi

Dashi is a Japanese stock or broth, and it is a fundamental ingredient that provides the savoury umami in miso soup, noodle soup, chawanmushi (savoury egg custard), and nabe (hot pot). Without dashi in Japanese cooking, it lacks authenticity. There are various types of dashi depending on the use and your preference however; the Awase Dashi is a basic all-purpose dashi that goes well with most Japanese dishes.
