Japanese fried chicken (KARA-AGE) & Rice ball (ONIGIRI)

<Menu>
  1. KARA-AGE (Japanese fried chicken)
  2. Onigiri (Tuna-mayo rice ball)
  3. Miso soup (potato and onion)
The Japanese version of fried chicken is known as “KARA-AGE”. It is popular as a lunch box (bento box) menu, as well as an izakaya (tavern) menu. Chicken meat is marinated with typical Japanese seasonings, and then deep-fried. Onigiri (rice ball) is typical bento box item. You can purchase them at convenient stores in Japan, but hand-shaped freshly homemade onigiri is always nice and delicious. You can make a triangular shaped onigiri easily! And you can also learn how to make Japanese basic Dashi stock. What is Dashi stock?  It is savory broth made from Japanese foods, such as dried kombu kelp, and dried bonito. They are all rich in “umami” flavor. In this class we use Dashi stock to make miso soup. Miso soup is a soul food for Japanese people. ☆I hold an online lesson on a request basis, so please let me know your desired time. <Highlights>
  1. We cook KARA-AGE (Japanese-style soy sauce flavored fried chicken). The following cooking method provides you with crispy surface and juicy inside fried chicken.
  2. When making rice ball, we grasp cooked rice in our own bare hands to make it triangular shape. We will do this together, because grasping rice ball needs some knack.
  3. Basic Dashi stock is a fundamental to washoku cooking. Your dishes will become wonderfully delicious and if you keep the stock ready, it’s very convenient while cooking.
  4. Follow along with detailed demonstration from your friendly online instructor and enjoy Japanese popular cuisine.

Teachers profile
Hi! Welcome to my online cooking experience! I’m Izumi. Once I lived in Virginia, USA for two years when my kids were small. The elementary school where my son went had so many international students from over 70 countries, and I cooked Japanese foods in the school festival. The memories I had there through exchanging cultures and cooking were amazing!  Now I live in suburban Tokyo area. I have a qualification for the Japan association of cooking for foreigners, and teach them Japanese cuisine. I maintain my cooking class where I teach Japanese Oshi-sushi cooking classes and vegan & vegetarian meal with Japanese ingredients classes on face to face basis in my kitchen. My class members enjoyed so much. Now I’m offering my cooking class online, and I hope more guests to enjoy attractive Japanese culture and cuisine (Washoku) through this online cooking experience. How about enjoying Washoku cooking together?
