A taste of home in Iwate Prefecture, which is cooked by “tearing and tossing”


This is a kind of hot pot made of flour dumplings, which are kneaded, rolled out, torn into small pieces by hands and tossed into the pot, simmered with seasonal vegetables in a dashi soup. The dashi and ingredients differ depending on the seasons, but fresh water fish and crabs, chickens, and mushrooms are usually used.
