Not your average rice salad, super cooling with neba-neba power

A green rice salad particularly refreshing. It’s loaded with gumbo (okra).

Neba neba, that’s the effect of the cut okra. A sort of strong jelly gets out of it and makes threads… It’s very hydrating. This food is recommended for hot weather.

I’ve mixed grains. 2/3 of genmai brown rice, a little mochi awa foxtail millet (small balls) and hato mugi Job’s Tears(big balls). They all cooked together in the rice cooker, but with 10% more water than usual. Of course no salt.

Okra, the rice mix. Tomato paste, negi leeks. Indian spice mix powder plus fennel seeds.

Some day try to jellifyyour salad sauce. It’s very surprising.
酢醤油寒天 sushoyu kanten : Agar jellified dressing. It’s a mix of soy sauce, cane sugar and rice vinegar, into agar agar.

Fork crumbled. Serve it very cold.

The jelly dressing on top is really pleasant.

It’s very easy to eat. No filling of heavy stomach like after a big dish of starch. The sourness of the jelly and the fennel seeds combine in an original flavor.
