Oden (Japanese fish cake pot)

Introduction

This is one of typical winter food in Japan you may want to try at a cold night.
This is also a savory way to take important calcium which is hard to get solely from food.
My recipe here is an advanced and tastier version with more ingredients and steps, but you can just use a Kibun oden package, toss the content with coming sauce in boiling water and cook about 10 minutes. Voila! Oden is ready to be on your table.

You can find the nearest Japanese grocer or online grocer from www.justhungry.com.
