Hi Naveen! Off to Japan, eh?! You are so lucky! I am waiting for my daughter to grow up some more and then make a trip to Japan.

I can sense the anxiety in you and I wish I could be of more assistance than the moral support I can offer. I haven't experienced Japan apart from having a close Japanese friend who lives near Tokyo. What I can tell you is that you can learn some basic things about Indian cooking before you leave for Japan. Stuff like how to make a phodni/tarka/vaghaar using oil, mustard seeds, jeera, red/green chillies and hing. Once you have this pat, you will be able to cook vegetables and dals by using a basic phodni and/or ginger/garlic. Half the battle is won.

Carry some basic ingredients with you, too. That way, you are not hunting for an Indian store as soon as you get there. Carry the stuff required for phodni except the oil, of course. Carry some packaged masalas like garam masala, pav bhaji masala, Punjabi chhole masala and so on. Then all you need to do is buy the veggies from a regular grocery store and cook according to the instructions on the back of the packet.

And, fear not, because being a vegetarian in Japan is not as uncommon as you might think it is. And feel free to drop me a line here if you need help with a recipe or if you just want to chat about Indian food.

Best of luck!!

Hi Rice and Indira! Welcome to IFR! Sorry for the belated welcome!

Rice, I have a very close friend who is Japanese and lives in Japan. Every time he visits me, he can't get enough of Indian food. We always eat at home! I have next to no exposure to Japanese food and I have made him promise that the next time he visits, he has to take me to an authentic Japanese restaurant.

Indira, I loved your blog! You have so many wonderful recipes!! I wish I could post more often but there just don't seem to be enough hours in the day...
