Oden Hotpot

During my first year of marriage, I cook my oden hotpot using oden seasoning sold at supermarkets but thanks to my Mother-In-Law who taught me her homestyle way of making oden and now I'm cooking them with my own family. Here's the recipe of my homemade oden hotpot. You may add anything you want for your oden like hanpen ( fish cakes ) and or ganmodoki or atsuage ( fried tofu ). You may use oden seasoning sold at your favorite Asian stores instead of using A.

Ingredients: ( good for 4 persons )

daikon radish - 300g
potatoes - 4 pcs
boiled eggs - 4 pcs
konnyaku ( yam cake) - 1 block
chikuwa - 1 pack
dried kombu knots ( kelp ) - 4pcs soaked in water, discard the water afterwards
chicken legs - 8 pcs


dashi - 900 ml water + 2 teaspoon instant dashi powder
soy sauce - 4 1/2 tablespoon
sugar - 2/3 tablespoon
mirin - ( japanese sweet cooking wine ) 2 1/3 tablespoon
salt - 2/3 teaspoon

1: Cut daikon into thick rounds. Leave potatoes in whole. Peel boiled eggs.

2: Cut other ingredients into large pieces.

3: Boil A in a large pot or hotpot.

4: Add ingredients into the pot starting with the chicken except for the chikuwa.

5: Turn down the heat to low and simmer for 40-60 minutes.

6: Please remember that the longer you cook oden, the better the taste.

7: Add chikuwa and or hanpen ( if you have them ) just before you eat them.

Serve with hot rice and salad. See, it's a quick, easy and warming dish best for cold months! Enjoy with beer!! ^_^
