Japanese Sweets (Ohagi)

Two types of traditional sweets with a delicious sticky rice centre.

Recipe By: midnight kitchen (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/111)
Serves 6

Ingredients

Short grain rice 1 gou (150g)
Glutinous rice 1 gou (150g)
Water 500ml
Tinned azuki beans 1 (400g)
Brown sugar 70g
Soy sauce 1/2 tsp
Soya bean powder 4 tbsp
Sugar 1 tbsp

Method

1
Wash the short grain rice and glutinous rice together and soak for 2-3 hours.
2
I used Epicure Organic Aduki Beans, sold in Waitrose.
3
Put the beans in a pan with the water and add 1/3 brown sugar and turn the heat on to high. When it boils, turn the heat down to medium. Stir and simmer and add the remaining brown sugar a bit at a time.
4
When the liquid has reduced, add the soy sauce and simmer. Use a wooden spoon to stir. When you can see the base of the pan clear for several seconds and the beans don't drip off the spoon, it's ready.
5
Cook the rice as usual and allow to cool slightly. Make into small cylinder shapes to fit the palm of your hand. You should be able to make 24.
6
Make half into azuki bean wrapped sweets: put some cling film on a plate and spread 1 heaped tbsp of the azuki bean paste from Step 4 into a flat round shape. Place one rice ball in the middle and wrap round completely with the azuki.
7
With the other half, mix the soya bean powder and sugar in a bowl and coat the rice balls. Use granulated sugar not brown sugar for this variety, to keep the brown colour of the soya bean powder.
8
Transfer to a serving dish and enjoy.

Tips & Note

When the azuki bean paste cools, it will firm up, so finish cooking it when it's still slightly loose. I've made slightly healthier versions here, but you can add more sugar if you like.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto. This risotto serves as the bed upon which Beef Osso Buco will rest in the next episode (#107).
 
It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
