aubergine(eggplant) KABAYAKI


Most popular Japanese food “Kabayaki” is eel kabayaki. Grilled eels are sprinkled with sweet soy sauce and eaten with rice, which is a favourite dish among Japanese people. This time, I will use aubergine to introduce rice bowl dishes that children love.


100g Aubergine
1 tbsp. Potato starch
2 tbsp. Sake
3 tbsp. Mirin
3 tbsp. Soy sauce
2 tbsp. Sugar
200g rice

Wrap it and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes.

Step 4
After cooling a little, cut it into thin rectangular shapes.
Sprinkle with potato starch.

Step 5

Put oil in the pan and grill aubergine until become brown both sides.

Step 6

Put half of sauce into the pan and cover well.

Step 7

Serve rice in a bowl and put aubergine and the rest of the sauce on top.


You can also sprinkle seaweed, soft-boiled eggs, and chilli peppers if you like.

I always procure many ingredients from Ocado.
Many Japanese use it.
You can get a lot of Japanese ingredients.

And I also recommend Japan Centre.
You can get not only Japanese ingredients but also miscellaneous goods and books.
