Chankonabe A hearty stew that evolved as a way to fatten up Sumo wrestlers. Chankonabe has no fixed recipe but always contains large quantities of protein sources such as quarter chickens, fish balls, tofu and beef. Everything is chunky and sumo sized. The broth is dashi or chicken broth and starchy vegetables are added for balance. Chankonabe is a novelty food in Japan. It's fun to eat but isn't a regular part of the Japanese diet.
