When people talk about Japanese food, many people think of sushi, tempura or sukiyaki. There are also many delicious foods which are still not yet so popular outside of Japan. Today, I would like to introduce Japanese mother’s homemade cooking.
Niku-jaga is one of the most popular Japanese homemade foods. In Japan, this Niku-jaga is recognized as food which attracts guys! It looks difficult to make, but actually it’s very easy. Why don’t you try making it to impress your Japanese friends?
Miso-soup is indispensable in Japanese meals. The day doesn’t start for Japanese without eating miso-soup for breakfast.There are many types of miso and also many kinds of ingredients. Furthermore, there are differences between each family. The standard ingredients are tofu, seaweed, and mushrooms or clams. I’ll give you a tip: use lots of leeks to make it extra delicious.
There are many kinds of miso!
Curry and Rice
Curry is originally an indian food, but it has evolved its own separate style in Japan. Now, it has become another standard home food. Japanese curry is much thicker than Indian curry and is usually eaten with rice. Every grocery store has curry roux for sale, so it is one of the easier foods to make at home.
Kara-age (Deep fried chicken)
Kara-age is very popular food among all generations! It is also popular as a sidedish in lunch boxes. It is often flavored with soy sauce and tastes a bit different from fried chicken in foreign countries. It goes especially well with rice.
Ginger pork is especially popular among young men. It is easy to make and surely will please many people! Just looking at the picture makes me hungry. Excuse me now while I go cook some ginger pork!
