I think that in other cuisines, slimy foods are cooked in a way to reduce or elimiate the slime, but in Japanese cuisine, slimy foods are usually eaten just as they are.
Mulukhiyya is one such example. Natto is another. We also like to combine slimy foods together.

This morning, I gathered some young mulukhiyya leaves from my tiny vegetable garden, boiled them for a few minutes, and chopped them very finely. They are a great addition to natto!
