Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes. These were all written to fit on a 3×5 card and written simply to remind her about how to make the dish. As a result, they are often hard for anyone else to “unpack” the sometimes cryptic instructions. I am adapting this recipe for my Japanese feast this Sunday, so I thought to post it for reference.
Note: With seven mouths to feed, my mother was notoriously frugal. Today, I would replace the bouillon and water with low sodium broth.
