Enjoy rice and ingredients in one bowl
Takikomi-gohan is a rice dish prepared by cooking rice with vegetables, meat or seafood with seasonings.
In Japanese cuisine, the ingredients used in takikomi-gohan are often seasonal ingredients- vegetables such as beans, chestnuts, bamboo shoots, matsutake mushrooms and seafood such as sea bream, saury and oysters.
Western-style takikomi-gohan, or pilaf, is prepared by first sautéing the ingredients and the rice and then cooking in water or bouillon. Seasonings such as turmeric, curry powder or tomato ketchup may be added for color and flavor.
