Default Share your Japanese recipes here

I love cooking and I also like to try a fair share of Japanese dishes. There are a few things I tried but also a lot I haven't so I am curious if there are more people who like to share recipes

I will start with an easy recipe for Japanese potato salad.

3 medium potatoes, well scrubbed
About 10 cm / 4 inches of a seedless cucumber
2 hands of peas
1 egg
Salt and pepper
3/4 to 1 cup of Japanese mayonnaise, note there is a difference! It is essential for the taste. You can buy it at large toko's.

Boil the potatoes in their skins until tender (you can poke a skewer through one without any resistance). Boil the peas shortly. Boil the egg until hard boiled at the same time.

In the meantime, slice the cucumber very thinly. Sprinkle both with a little salt, and let sit for a while (10 minutes or more) until the vegetables exude their juices. Squeeze firmly to get rid of the juices.
When the potatoes are done, drain peel them while still hot (holding each in a kitchen towel to peel them helps). Cut the potatoes into small pieces. Toss with a little salt and pepper and leave to cool.
Peel the hard boiled egg and chop up finely.

When the potatoes and have cooled to room temperature, mix in the cucumber, peas and egg. Mix in the mayonnaise. Cover with plastic wrap and cool in the refrigerator until serving time (ideally at least one hour).

Hmm, I guess most supermarkets don't have all the ingredients...
Where would you guys suggest to get them?
Uniflame recommends a large toko, so I'll try the larger one in Utrecht, but Utrecht is still quite some distance. Let's hope the toko in Nieuwegein (really close) is still open. They are doing some reconstruction work in the mall, and the previous location is demolished

often a Toko does carry the stuff. if it's a chinese toko the chances are higher compared to an indian toko for instance.

I am lucky that the toko in Nijmegen centrum carries some products, but my advise would be: if you are in a big city like Rotterdam, Amsterdam or Utrecht, stock up on ingredients!

the server of the site is broken on the moment, but the store has ingredients for Korean and Japanese cooking.

About a month ago I published a recipe for Daigaku Imo - A Japanese sweet potato snack. I served it when some friends came over for a night of anime and everyone loved it. So here is the recipe:

All with easy to get ingredients.

I would suggest the following channels on Youtube.
https://www.youtube.com/user/cookingwithdog
https://www.youtube.com/user/runnyrunny999
They show how to prepare several Japanese dishes.
