To see what Mochiko Chicken is just click HERE. She not only gives you a recipe but also shows you how to do it.

My family likes the recipe I use for it but the one above will suffice. Actually, my recipe is similar but I add sesame seeds and minced green onions.

Recipe for Cucumber Namasu:
1 Japanese cucumber seeded and sliced thinly
1 tsp sugar
Salt to taste
Rice Vinegar
Sprinkle with salt and let sit while you fry the chicken pieces
Add sugar and about one to two tablespoons rice vinegar

Seems someone else is cooking up something new (Yes, that was a bad pun)!

This is great! I'll be visiting every day.
