Oden - Japanese Hotchpotch -

It’s getting colder day by day. Time for a nice hotpot dish.

Oden (Japanese hotchpotch)

Oh, don’t ask me how I seasoned the soup. I used instant oden soup mix. :P As you might have guessed, I got lazy tonight. Oden doesn’t require much preparation if you use instant soup mix and buy ready-made ingredients. All I did for this was some peeling and chopping. Well, I had a long day today….




My favorite ingredients are egg, daikon and potato. Things like sausage and mini-cabbage roll are not traditional ingredients, but I like them in oden.

it's hard to pass through a street vendors selling Oden especially in winter time.
i also like to eat white radish(daikon?)in the soup, but i never put potato in it. will try next time. ;)

Hi grilled aubergine,
I love potatoes in oden. But today I boiled them too long so they fell apart and almost melt while boiling. It is said to be better to use the kind that stays firm like mayqueen.
