Rika's TOKYO CUISINE: Rika's Umami Oden *RERUN
In today's episode, we'll be making Oden, a winter favorite. Chef Rika will be preparing her special soup, with a dashi base made with kombu kelp and bonito flakes, and seasoned with nam pla. We'll be simmering a variety of ingredients in this soup, including daikon radish, Konnyaku, eggs, handmade Ganmodoki and handmade mochi Kinchaku (fried tofu pockets stuffed with mochi). We'll also be preparing delicious brown-tinted rice, with the rich flavor of dashi and the fragrance of soy sauce. For dessert, we'll be making a refreshing Japanese-style sorbet with yuzu citrus, rich in vitamin C.
