This is a Japanese recipe consisting of sweet dumplings on skewers. These are widely enjoyed in Japan and by...ME..hehe. You often see anime characters munching on these yummies.I have edited thsi recipe, noting that glutinous rice flour is used.
This is a response to a request. It looks so yummy. Fried rice and seafood in a sort of bechamel sauce and covered in cheese then broiled. You can't go wrong with cheese and seafood...mmm..my faves. This recipe is from a good friend of mine. Cook time is an estimate.
Legend has it that the first Dorayaki were made when a samurai named Benkei forgot his gong (‘dora’ in Japanese) upon leaving a farmer’s home where he was hiding and the farmer used the gong to fry the pancakes, thus the name Dorayaki. These are really yummy and great for a brunch or snack. The adzuki bean paste is known as anko. Cook time is estimate.
These are some of the best pancakes I have ever had. I got the recipe out of a local newspaper and am sure glad I did. You will love them too. Great for a brunch or Mother's Day! Cook time is an estimate!
This Ice Cream is to die for! I got the recipe from www.about.com and have since made it many times. It is a bit more involved to make but worth the effort.The ginger flavor is keenest for the first 24 hours. It is still sprightly after 2 days, but then gradually begins to fade. Great to end a Chinese meal!The cook and prep times are estimates, I never really kept track!
Attention grabbing name isn't it!? We call them frogs where I live but I have heard of them referred to as Macaroons, No-bakes and even "blots". No matter what the name, they are DELICIOUS!Cook time includes time in the fridge.
With all of the Canadians here in Zaar, I was surprised that I could not find a copycat recipe for the Canadian fried pastry sold as Beavertails®! Strange name, I know, but they are soooo good. Anyone who has been skating on the Rideau Canal is sure to have tried one and I have even seen them being sold in Halifax. I think they have something similar in America called "Elephant Ears". I got this version of the recipe from betterbaking.com. Dough can be made in bread machine set on "dough" cycle.
Literally translated, tsukimi means "viewing the moon". The egg in this dish represents the "full moon" surrounded by "clouds" of noodles. It is traditionally served in the autumn but I love it all year long. For some reason, I find it very romantic.lol.
Tamago is Japanese for "egg". Tamago yaki is sushi using an egg, like a sushi omelette. I really love it for it's sweet taste and light texture. You need a tamago pan to make this recipe. Any type of stock can be used in place of the dashi for a less fishy taste. Sounds complicated, but after a bit of practice, it gets much easier.
This recipe is so simple yet so yummy. Great for when you are craving a dessert fix but don't have a lot of time. I make them using my Hello Kitty sandwich maker. My dad and I get a real kick out of it! I can't wait to try these with different fillings, maybe even..mmmm CHOCOLATE! I wonder if this would work using meat pie filling???Can easily be doubled.
This is a cake recipe that I found on allrecipes.com and thought it was worth sharing. I made it a few weeks ago for my cousins birthday and decorated it as Spongebob Squarepants! It was awesome! Everyone loved it and polished the whole thing off. If you love Reese's, or anything peanutty/chocolattely you will LOVE this cake
Although not originally a Japanese recipe, Korokke is widely enjoyed in Japan today. There are many kinds of korokke, both sweet and savory. They are basically deep fried croquettes. This is a recipe for a filling with onion, ground beef and potatoe, one of the more popular types of korokke.
This is the recipe for Sushi rice that I have learned from my father, the Sushi chef at Minado sushi. It's not really a secret recipe, many restaurants prepare rice this way, but it produces really great rice. More of a technique than anything. This is a response to a request in the forum and I hope you guys like it!
This is a recipe for futo-maki (thick roll) It is my mother's favorite type of maki sushi and I make it a lot for her. Kampyo is dried gourd and can be found in most Asian markets or in the foreign foods section of the supermarket.
This is a recipe for Japanese Daifuku Cake. Daifuku is a soft Japanese mochi cake that is filled with a sweet bean filling. The recipe seems to be long but it is really easy and so worth it. You will be rewarded with a delicious Japanese treat!
My family looovess these rice balls and they are often requested at get togethers. A simple recipe. It can be served as an entree with the salmon or the salmon can be left out. Make sure to wet your hands in water so the rice does not stick to your hands.
