Makoto ni arigatou gozaimasu. Seriously. Your presentation is so full of warmth and love–essential ingredients in all WASHOKU. I watched several lesser videos before landing here. This is the best of the best. Thank you so much. You took me back to my life in Japan and my years after. Soro soro.

I strongly dislike garlic and onion, is it ok to leave them out?

Prasad Naik says:

Hi. Love your videos but the color correction needs some work. There is a strong green tint to the video that made the pale white gyoza look green.
