Experiment: Snow hot pot (雪鍋)
Introduction: I have leftover food from making Ozoni. I flipped through a few Japanese cookbooks, and found that Snow hot pot has pretty much the same ingredients as the Ozoni! So I decided to give it a try.
1/3 daikon/white radish
750g chicken thigh, cut into small pieces
1/2 Chinese cabbage
1 pack of Tofu
Chopped green onion
2 slices of ginger
1/2 tbs sesame oil
2 cups dashi stock
2 cups water
2 tbs soy sauce
1 ts yuzu powder
1) Shred the daikon, and drain the water.
2) Cut the carrot in thin slices, and the Chinese cabbage into small pieces.
3) Heat up the pot, put some oil in. Put the ginger in, then add the chicken and sesame oil.
4) When the chicken changes colour, put all the soup ingredients in.
5) Put the Chinese cabbage, tofu and carrots in.
6) Bring to boil, then reduce to medium heat, and simmer for a few minutes.
7) Put the shredded daikon in the centre of the pot, then sprinkle the green onion on top of the daikon.
1) 1ts of yuzu powder actually wasn’t quite enough. I couldn’t really taste the yuzu. I ended up adding some ponzu (yuzu vinegar) into my rice bowl… then it tasted SO MUCH BETTER!
This snow hot pot is pretty good for winter! It’s quick and easy, and it’s not much for clean up! Just one pot, 2 rice bowls and 2 pairs of chopsticks! Love this!
