Reito Sozai

Frozen Ready Meals / Ingredients

Sozai is a term for Japanese everyday side dishes. Often put in bento lunchboxes, typical sozai include tempura, croquettes, meat cutlets, omelettes, spring rolls, fried fish and gyoza and shumai dumplings. Frozen sozai that can be cooked in the microwave or oven are a popular and convenient option for busy working parents who need to prepare lunchboxes for their children. Fried foods such as croquettes, spring rolls and tempura are particularly appreciated as it takes a lot of time and effort to cook them from scratch.
