  • 2 potatoes
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 boiled eggs
  • 1 block of konnyaku (transparent yam starch cake)
  • 2 blocks of fried tofu (ganmodoki or atsuage)
  • 2-4 fish cakes
  • 4-5 Tbs of soy sauce
  • 1 Tsp of sugar
  • 2 Tbs of sake (Japanese rice wine)
  • *You may use oden seasoning sold at Asian stores instead of using sake, soysauce, and sugar.


  1. Cut daikon into thick rounds. Cut potatoes in half. Peel boiled eggs. Cut other ingredients into large pieces. 
  2. Boil 4 cups of dashi soup stock in a large pot or donabe pot. Add ingredients into the pot. Add sake, soy sauce, and sugar in the pot.
  3. Turn down the heat to low and simmer for 40-60 minutes. *The longer you cook oden, the better the taste. 
  4. Add dashi soup stock and soy sauce as needed.
