6 Japanese Recipes I Tried Using Only A Rice Cooker & Steamer

Since I came in Malaysia more than 7 months ago, I’ve been obsessed with Japanese culture and merchandise and food than any other, which is funny. Remember my post ‘Sayonara! I’m turning Japanese‘? And the more recent one, ‘Why I love anime‘? And now this… Yeps, that little inner Japanese chibi me is growing!

However, since Japanese food is quite pricey (in comparison to the other various options I mean) here, I was at some point frustrated on not being able to fully embrace that special Asian cuisine everyday. It wasn’t really expected but I went to the local bookstore and went through the cookery section and my luck! There was a Japanese cookbook on sale! And it was by DK publishing!

I gave myself 24h to think about it, after quickly browsing through the ingredients and materials needed…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Simple

Yes, it’s simple as that.
