Home-Cooked Japanese Food

Miso broth

A classic Japanese dish, miso soup is created using miso paste and dashi (broth). There are frequently some extra components, including vegetables, seaweed, tofu, broth, and miso paste. Japanese-style dinners often include miso soup, white rice, and grilled salmon. The brown soup may seem strange to those who have never eaten it, but regardless of your background, nationality, or age, everyone may enjoy its mild flavor! It is most likely provided at breakfast in a traditional Japanese ryokan to warm your body from the inside and set your day off to a good start.


Over the years, Japanese people have cherished nikujaga, a unique handcrafted dish. The English equivalent is “braised beef and potatoes.” Pork, potatoes, carrots, onions, and konnyaku noodles are typical ingredients for Nikujaga. They are cooked in a stew of sweetened soy sauce until the vegetables are tender. One meal can satisfy your cravings for various flavors and textures.

Rice in curry

Curry Rice translates to “a plate of curry and rice,” thus it should come as no surprise that the meal is typically presented and consumed on one plate. Curry was first brought to Japan from India in the late 19th century, and the recipe has since undergone numerous modifications. Various ingredients, including potatoes, carrots, onions, and meat, are used to make the curry sauce. Curry powder or roux, which are readily available in every supermarket, can be used to provide a spicy flavor. You can select the level of spiciness you like, including mild varieties that have an almost sweet taste that is a perennial kid favorite!
