– The basis of any “pot soup” (nabemono), to which chankonabe belongs – chicken broth or dashi (fish broth) with sake (an alcoholic drink made from fermented rice) or mirin (sweet rice wine).

– Chankonabe is made from any available products, so this soup does not have a strict recipe. Different schools of sumo also have their own special chankonabe recipes. Additional ingredients that can be added to chankonabe soup without breaking the concept are chicken, beef or fish, noodles, tofu (bean curd), miso (fermented bean or cereal paste), shiitake mushrooms , vegetables.

– Mirin in the recipe can be replaced with fruit wine.
