With colder winter weather on it's way, why not make yourself cosy at home and try a traditional Japanese winter hotpot – Oden.
Oden is a Japanese winter dish consisting of several ingredients such as boiled eggs, daikon, konjac, and fishcakes stewed in a light, soy-flavoured dashi broth. Ingredients vary according to region and between each household.
Traditionally it's made in a donabe or pottery pot, but it's not a requirement to use one. Oden is simmered for long periods of time in a light Japanese dashi broth.
In Japan, Oden is often sold from food carts, and most convenience stores have simmering oden pots in winter.
Hon-Dashi seafood flavour is Japan's No.1 brand seafood flavour seasoning made from dried Bonito and other flavourings.
Use as a base for many Japanese dishes including miso soups & noodle soups.
Add these tasty bites to your soup broth, and the tied Konbu strips will expand to offer a filling and unique texture that will compliment your Oden.
