Kagami-mochi ^___~


We have custom to eat special rice-cakes, Kagami-Mochi on Jan 11th to wish for health and happiness.
Usually people eat with traditional and simple soup as Ozoni, but we had with mashrooms soup.
Ingredients:Shitake, Enoki, Nameki, Eringi, chicken breast, dried kelp, leaks, soy sauce and salt.

It is said that cutting Kagami-mochi with nife is unlucky, so break it into small pieces by hand.

Make a cut cross in Elingi so that taste would be mascerated into the cut side well. Soak a dried kelp into the water for more than 20 mins, turn a heat and take it off before boil.

Put chickens first. After remove scum of chicken, add mashrooms and leaks. Adjust taste with seasonings of two tbls of soy sauce and salt.
It can be Udon instead of rice-cakes or just enjoy mashroom-soup .
