Japan continues to attract Australians in droves, so it’s no wonder Japanese food is growing in popularity here, whether we’re eating Japanese cuisine at a restaurant or cooking Japanese recipes at home. From a Japanese curry recipe to okonomiyaki (a Japanese pancake recipe), yakitori, and your kara-age, we have recipes for the Japanese and Japanese-inspired dishes you know and love.

We have classic Japanese recipes, such as warming udon noodle soups, flavour-packed ramen, a gyoza dumpling recipe and a Japanese pickle side dish. Plus, simple sashimi rice bowls, pork belly donburi, and a crowd-pleasing teriyaki chicken recipe for easy Japanese dinners on weeknights. For something sweet, we have mochi ice-cream for a classic Japanese dessert as well as sweet tofu doughnuts with yuzu salted caramel.

Here are our best recipes for Japanese food that you can make at home.
