When I first heard about ‘Kimu-Taku Rice’ which is very popular in Nagano prefecture, Japan, I thought it was related to a Japanese star Kimura Takuya aka ‘Kimu-Taku’ who is an actor and also a member of an idol group SMAP. I was very wrong. ‘Kimu-Taku’ stands for ‘Kimuchi (Kimchi) and Takuan (Japanese pickled daikon radish) and it is a fried rice dish. I never tried it in Japan, so I don’t know how close my recipe is to the authentic Nagano’s ‘Kimu-Taku Rice’ but it is certainly delicious!

Slices of roasted chicken spread over a bed of fried rice, with a mango sauce poured over the top. I have included my recipe for fried rice here, but any would be suitable. The better quality the mango the better the dish. I have not tried this with fresh mangoes as you need the juice from the tin, however I'm sure it would add to the flavour to use fresh mango and a mango nectar or juice.
