- As I was cooking for a muslim I emited any ingredient with alcohol so no mirin or sake was in this version (as suppose to the original Japanese mixed rice recepies but I've included them in the recipe fo those who like to know marked with * )
- You can use a rice cooker for this on normal white rice setting, after adding all liquids to the rice just top it up with water according to the instructions of your rice cooker for the amount of rice you are using.
- Add the toppings on top of the rice after you add the water in order of how long the may take to cook in layers and mix everything after it is cooked fully so for example meat and harder vegetables that take long to cook would be the first layer on top of the rice and the fried tofu which is already a cooked ingredient is the last layer at top!
- Toppings to mix in rice can be anything you like, I have even use salmon as my meat.
Other typical toppings in Japan are burdock root (shredded very thinly), onion, ginger and etc.
