  Ravioli ripieni al vapore - CHAO-TZU - Ingredienti e dosi -per la pasta :  200 gr di farina bianca -
125 gr di acqua tiepida  - 1 cucchiaino di olio di sesamo (facoltativo)
Per il ripieno cotto:  - 120 gr di maiale macinato  - 60 gr di germogli di bambù -
pezzettino di zenzero fresco  - 20 gr di funghi cinesi neri  - 1 cipollotto -
1/2 cucchiaio di pasta di soya dolce (facoltativo) - olio per friggere -
sale, pepe e salsa di soya q.b.  - albume d'uovo sbattuto oppure acqua - FATE  COSI .

I Chiao-tzu sono un piatto tradizionale cinese ed il loro ripieno può essere cotto o crudo, di maiale, di verdura e perfino dolce. Oltre che al vapore possono essere cotti anche bolliti oppure saltati in padella.
Preparare in anticipo la pasta e lasciarla riposare per mezz'ora coperta con un panno bagnato e ben strizzato. Nel frattempo preparare il ripieno che in questo caso è cotto: tritare finemente il bambù, il cipollotto, il cavolo e i funghi ammollati nell'acqua e poi ben strizzati, far scaldare l'olio nella padella e quando è bollente soffriggervi brevemente la carne di maiale, aggiungere la pasta di soya, la salsa di soya e mescolare bene. Aggiungere subito dopo gli altri ingredienti, rimescolare per non più di un minuto e togliere dal fuoco. Lasciare raffreddare l'impasto preferibilmente in frigorifero, mentre si preparano i ravioli. Prendere l'impasto e lavorarlo bene per altri tre o quattro minuti, tirare con il matterello o con la macchinetta la pasta fino ad ottenere una sfoglia molto sottile da cui si ricaveranno circa 40 dischetti del diametro di 8/9 cm l'uno (usare una formina per biscotti o un bicchiere). A questo punto bisogna riempire i ravioli. Tenere in mano un disco di pasta e mettere al centro un cucchiaio di ripieno, inumidire i bordi della pasta con l'albume e fare 4/6 piegoline, spingendo con il pollice il bordo della pasta verso sinistra. Ripiegare ogni disco su se stesso e premere bene.  A questo punto si possono cuocere al vapore con i caratteristici cestelli di bambù oppure con le nostre pentole, l'importante è ungere bene il cestello e il fianco del raviolo che sarà a contatto con quello vicino. Io li cuoco bolliti in acqua bollente e salata, sono pronti quando riaffiorano in superficie. Una volta raccolti e messi nei piatti, ogni commensale potrà condirli a piacere con salsa di soya, sambal oelek, salsa agrodolce.

Takikomi  Gohan  _ ingredienti  e   dosi  _haiga mai ( half  polished  brown  rice)
3 1/2 cups dashi
1/2 block konnyaku
4 shiitake mushrooms
1 carrot
1 cup snow peas
1/2 cup diced chicken (optional)
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp sake  -  preparation > There are many ways to mix ingredients into rice. Two of the most common forms are Takikomi-gohan, where the ingredients are cooked in the rice, and Maze-gohan, where the ingredients are added after the rice is cooked. This traditional recipe can be used with either plain rice or sticky (often labeled sweet, or mochi) rice. Cut the konnyaku into strips, and simmer in the dashi, adding the soy sauce, mirin, salt, sugar, and sake. Continue to simmer for about 20 minutes, until the strips are nicely flavored. Konnyaku has very little flavoring on its own, so it takes on the flavor of the simmering liquid. Taste a piece; it should be strongly flavored so that it retains its flavor while cooking. - Soak the shiitake mushrooms for at least 30 monutes. Drain, reserving the liquid (but discard the last bit of liquid at the bottom, as it can contain debris, or little bits of mushroom.) Cut into 1/4” strips. Simmer the shiitake strips in the simmering liquid from the konnyaku, adding some or all of the reserved soaking liquid from the shiitake. I am often asked why the shiitake and konnyaku are not cooked together. The reason is to try to retain as much of the separate unique flavors as possible. Drain the shiitake and let the liquid cool to room temperature. Cut the lengthwise carrot into thin sheets. Cut the sheets into 1/2” by 1/8” pieces. Cut the snow peas diagonally into thirds. Wash and measure the rice. Add the cooled liquid. Add water until the desired amount is reached. Add the ingredients, and cook in the same way as plain rice. You can add sautéed diced chicken to this dish, making it a full meal.

Place a heaping teaspoon of won ton filling in the center. Fold the wonton wrapper in half lengthwise, making sure the ends meet. Press down firmly on the ends to seal. Use thumbs to push down on the edges of the filling to center it. Keeping thumbs in place, fold over the wonton wrapper one more time. Push the corners up and hold in place between your thumb and index finger. Wet the corners with your fingers. Bring the two ends together so that they overlap. Press to seal. The finished product should resemble a nurse's cap. Repeat with remaining wontons. - oppure alternate  method >  Place the teaspoon of filling in the middle of the wrapper and twist to seal. The final result should resemble a money bag or drawstring purse.Boiling the wontons: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the won tons, making sure there is enough room for them to move about freely. Let the wontons boil for 5 - 8 minutes, until they rise to the top and the filling is cooked through. Remove from the pot with a slotted spoon. Deep-frying the wontons: Heat oil for deep-frying to 360 degrees. Add wonton in small batches and fry, turning occasionally, about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Wontons can be prepared ahead of time up to the cooking stage and frozen. Thaw before cooking.

Preparate la pasta, mettendo nel recipiente grande la farina [oppure su un piano, come vi trovate meglio] ed aggiungete pian piano l'acqua, finché l'impasto non raggiunge la consistenza desiderata; secondo i giapponesi un metodo per capire se la densità è quella giusta, la pasta dovrà avere la consistenza del lobo del vostro orecchio.Riponete la pasta a riposare in frigo, coperta con del cellophane.
Preparate ora il ripieno, mettendo nel recipiente più piccolo il resto degli ingredienti: bollite il cavolo verza in acqua non salata e strizzatelo prima di aggiungerlo; utilizzate lo zenzero in polvere oppure zenzero fresco grattugiato e strizzatelo sopra l'impasto del ripieno; il porro invece andrà aggiunto previo sminuzzamento in quadratini di 2-3mm [utilizzatene solo 2/3, la parte verde è un po' dura per questa preparazione]. Con un cucchiaio, o con le mani, cominciate a pigiare l'impasto, pressatelo finché non diventa abbastanza omogeneo, questa operazione sarà un po' lunga.
Riprendete ora la pasta che intanto ha riposato, fatene dei "salami" di 3cm ca di diametro e tagliatene "fette" di 1cm ca, lavoratele ora con il mattarello, utilizzando farina per non farle attaccare. Otterrete dei dischi di 8 cm ca di diametro, inseritevi l'impasto del ripieno e bagnatene le estremità con dell'acqua, in modo da aiutare la chiusura. Adagiateli in una padella oliata calda, fateli scottare qualche istante ed al momento in cui la parte inferiore sarà cotta, aggiungete dell'acqua nella padella, chiudete con un coperchio e aspettate fine cottura. > Gustate i Gyoza con della salsa di soia.

2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
½ teaspoon ground Sichuan pepper
2 tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
½ pound ground pork or beef
2 leeks, white parts thinly sliced at an angle
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 block soft or medium-firm tofu (about 1 pound), drained and cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tablespoon cornstarch, mixed with 2 tablespoons water
1 scallion, green part chopped for garnish
prèparation la salsa : Prepare the sauce: Rinse the black beans to remove any grit. In a small bowl, mash the black beans with the back of a spoon. Combine the black beans with the chicken stock, chili bean paste, rice wine, sesame oil, soy sauce, sugar, and Sichuan pepper and set aside. Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat until a bead of water sizzles and evaporates on contact. Add the peanut oil and swirl to coat the base and sides. Add the pork and stir-fry until crispy and starting to brown but not yet dry, about 2 minutes, breaking up the pork with a spatula. Reduce the heat to medium, then add leeks, garlic, and ginger and stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the sauce and bring the liquid to a boil, the reduce to a simmer. The liquid should now be a rich red color. Gently add the tofu cubes, being careful to not move them around too much or else they will break up. Allow the sauce to simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes so the tofu can cook and absorb the the sauce. Carefully push the tofu to the sides and create a small well in the middle. Stir in the cornstarch mixture in the center. Allow the liquid to simmer for another minute, until the sauce has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Transfer to a deep plate or wide bowl, sprinkle scallions on top, and serve hot.

Kurogoma  Soba  Noodles : ingredienti e dosi per 2 persone _ 1/4 cup black sesame seeds   , 4 tsp sugar  , 1 Tbsp shoyu  , 1 Tbsp rice vinegar  , 1 tsp sesame oil  , 1 satsuma age (fish cake) optional  , 1 stalk green onion, sliced on the diagonal  , 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro , 2 servings soba (they’re usually bundled in 1 serving portions) ( method )  Toast sesame seeds in a 10″ skillet over high heat until fragrant, tossing constantly. Keep a close eye when doing this because once the sesame is burned, it’s no good. I test whether it’s done by touching the seeds and if they’re hot to the touch, I know they’re done. Place in a Japanese mortar and grind well. Alternatively, Heidi says you can use a food processor (I haven’t tried this). Add the sugar, shoyu, vinegar, and sesame oil and mix well. Boil a small pot of water for the satsuma age (if using). The age is already cooked, but you’ll want to blanch to get rid of the stale oil that coats it. Slice and set aside. Boil a large pot of water and cook the soba according to the package directions. It should take between 4 to 5 mins. Drain and run cold water over the soba to cool. Drain well or the final product will be soggy and diluted. Add the soba to the sesame mixture and toss until well incorporated. Add the green onions, cilantro, and and satsuma age and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

Drain. Heat a wok or large frying pan over medium high heat. Add the olive oil, wine, 1 tablespoon Chinese rice wine or sherry, ginger, and green onion and the clams. Cover and cook just until the clams open (about 10 minutes). Use a slotted spoon to remove the clams from the pan. Do not clean out the pan.While the clams are steaming, mix the cornstarch and water into a paste. Combine the chicken broth, oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and sugar. Shuck the clams, setting aside the shells for later. Mince the clam meat and combine with the ground pork. Stir in 1 tablespoon sherry, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and salt to taste.Stuff this mixture into the clam half shells. Rub the cornstarch/water mixture paste over top. Reserve any extra cornstarch paste to add to the sauce later.At this point you can either deep- fry  or  strir--fry  the clams. If deep-frying, be careful to deep-fry only a few clams at a time, meat side up, sliding them carefully into the wok so that the oil doesn't splatter. Deep-fry until golden in color and drain on paper towels or a tempura rack if you have one. If stir-frying, place the clams in the wok with the meat side down. Stir-fry in 2 tablespoons heated oil until golden. Add the sauce ingredients into the pan with the wine. Add the clams back to the wok and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes. Add any remaining cornstarch/water paste, stirring quickly to thicken. Serve hot.
