Konoha Don

Konoha Don 
Konoha means foliage.
Looks like leafy rice bowl, doesn't it?

Sounds like this is popular in Kansai area. ( Western Japan )

Since I am from Tokyo, I didn't know.

Found the recipe and tried it.

The ingredients are something we can find in our fridge, cheap, daily things.
Kamaboko ( fish sausage ) is most common ingredient for this, but I only had Cihkuwa ( also fish sausage, but the shape is like cylinder ), so used it instead.

Other ingredients are green onion, egg, seasonings.   Easy to make, healthy enough and tasty.   Good for quick lunch.

It is almost Cherry Blossom season here.   The weather bureau announced that Tokyo's Sakura ( Cherry blossoms)  have just started blooming officially ( This official announcement is important for us. )We feel " Spring has come" when we hear this.

Hope I can upload some pics of fully bloomed cherry blossoms within a week or so.

Ingredients for Konoha Don ( Don or Donburi means  Rice Bowl ) :
Serving for One

Steamed white rice    1 Bowl

Fish Sausage ( Japanese Kamaboko or Chikuwa ) sliced.   I used about about
10 to 15 very thin slices.

Green Onion   1 to 2 stalks   Chopped

One Egg ( beaten in a bowl )

Soy Sauce  1 table spoon
Dashi ( Japanese Soup Stock or you can use powder)  50 cc or 1/2 cup
Sugar  1 table spoon
Mirin ( Sweet Rice Wine ) 2 tea spoons

Bring Dashi to boil.   Add Fish sausage.   Add soy sauce, sugar and mirin.
Add green onion.    Then, pour egg.   When the egg is half cooked, it's done.

Put the above onto the rice.  Enjoy!
