If talking about Japanese foods will blow your mind to, maybe the signature sushi, sashimi, and yakiniku. However, it is not something that the Japanese usually have in daily life. The Japanese home cooking will give a mindblowing on how various the Japanese food is.

Today we introduce some Japanese home cooking which you can do at home.

Miso Soup

This is a typical Japanese dish that usually comes out almost on any dining occasion, made from fermented soybeans. Making the miso soup is pretty easy as you only need to mix some amount of miso paste with boiled water and put some ingredients as you liking (such as tofu, fried tofu, mushroom, seaweed, etc).

Japanese Curry

We believe that most of you already know that Japanese curry is unique with thick curry roux which is different from the original Indian curry. Japanese curry is one of the favorite Japanese home cooking that is pretty easy to make. You will need some potatoes, carrots, onion, chicken (you can prefer thigh or minced), and some Japanese curry roux blocks, and voila! It’s ready to have.

To make it just like a Japanese curry shop, you can have half of your plate filled with white rice and fill another half with the curry, then put cutlets on the top.
