“U no hana” is one of the famous dish we make from Okara or soy pulp.
Okara consists insoluble parts or the soybean which remains after pureed soybeans are filtered in soy milk production.
It has good nutrition in it and it is really good for you.
(My mum often said “Eat a lot, it’s good for you”)

When you make soy milk or tofu by yourself (click here how to make tofu from scratch),
