Our Family's Recipe for Oden Soup Stock

This is our recipe for the base soup to simmer oden (fish cake and vegetable hotpot). I've added a description of how we simmer oden - just leave it alone!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Dashi stock (made with kombu, bonito flakes and niboshi )
6 cups - 1200 ml
Dashi soy sauce
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon
Chicken soup stock granules
1 teaspoon


1. Put the dashi stock and all of the seasonings into an earthenware pot and stir to dissolve.
2. Add whatever ingredients you like. First put in items such as daikon radish and potatoes that cook slowly in the bottom of the pot, and then add fish cakes and such on top as if to cover the ingredients that need to cook for longer.
3. Let it bubble and simmer for 30 minutes (uncovered).
4. After simmering for 30 minutes, immediately set the pot onto a double layer of bath towels and wrap it up. Leave it like that for 6 hours or more, and it's done!
5. Leave it alone, just like this .
