Cook delicious rice in a clay pot. I will teach you how to cook rice carefully.

Season and mix minced pork. Cut the cabbage, chives, and leeks into small pieces. Mix minced meat and vegetables. Wrap each of these ingredients in a gyoza wrapper. Arrange them neatly in a frying pan coated with sesame oil and steam-fry them until they are browned.

I'm going to make dashi soup. Add chopped vegetables, tofu, and wakame seaweed to the boiling dashi stock and simmer. Turn off the heat and dissolve the miso to complete.

Freshly cooked delicious rice and handmade dumplings are the best combination!
