【Menu】

Uzbek Pilaf

Plov is a traditional dish of Uzbekistan (many kinds of Uzbek pilafs: Samarkand, Fergana, and Khorezm, Tashkent) but it is loved and cooked in many countries of the former Soviet Republics, Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. It's delicious dish which family enjoys over the table. A hearty one-pot rice dish cooked in fat (lamb, beef or chicken) with onions and carrots, it has many variations.

This is a simple and colorful dish, but it's some of the best comfort food we know. It's a crowd-pleaser with a touch of the exotic, hearty but not heavy. Perfect winter grub. Easy and Delicious.


Japanese Tempura

Tempura is one of the most popular type of Japanese food that is widely enjoyed around the world. Tempura are battered and deep-fried vegetables, seafood, and so on. They are best served hot with tempura dipping sauce or salt. Grated daikon radish is a common condiment to put in the sauce.

If you know some tips, it's not so hard to make delicious tempura at home. All ingredients can be found easily at your local grocery stores. Actually, you can make tempura with various ingredients. Common Ingredients are shrimp, squid, green bell pepper, eggplant, sweet potatoes, potatoes, kabocha, carrot, mushrooms, shiso (perilla), and so on.

In addition, it needs very quick cooking time. Some of the sea food tempura just needs to fry for half a minute. Besides being a standalone dish, you can arrange tempura for Tempura Udon (wheat noodles), Tempura Soba (buckwheat noodles), Tempura Sushi and Tempura Don (sweet sauce tempura on rice).
