おせち料理 (Osechi Ryōri)

January 5, 2018

A Happy New Year !

For Japanese, New Year's day is the most important day of the year, it's just like Christmas for western people.  Traditionally, we prepare Japanese food called "Osechi Ryōri" and enjoy it with family on new year's day and onwards.

I usually make BASIC "Osechi Ryōri" with limited ingredients I can get in Perth.

This year, I didn't... for various reasons,  but I at least made two kinds 'Kuromame -Black beans' and 'Namasu - Pickled Vegetables' 😊

 My 'New Year version' of Japanese hand towel at the entrance.

 

 

Kuromame (Black Beans)

Very simple dish, but takes hours to make,,, 9 hours to soak in water, 3 plus hours to slow cook with sugar.   

 

 

 Namasu (pickled vegetables)

 

 

 Dinner on New Year's day.  Far from real "Osechi" ....   lol

(Chirashi sushi, green beans with sesame, egg omelet, black beans, namasu and deep-fried prawn skewers)

 

 

 

 

⇦ "Osechi Ryōri" usually looks like this... 

Each dish has meanings, such as 'peace','stable work', 'longevity' etc etc
