O-chazuke no Moto

O-chazuke Premix

O-chazuke literally means ‘tea poured over’ and makes a popular and comforting light meal or snack. The dish traditionally consists of ingredients such as grilled salmon, umeboshi and nori seaweed on a bowl of rice, over which green tea (o-cha) or dashi soup is then poured. Alternatively, a convenient premix can be used: o-chazuke can be made by adding water to a mix of ingredients in powdered and finely-chopped form. These ingredients can include sesame seeds, wasabi, sansai plants and arare rice crackers.
