Braised Radish

Aha! I have said before, allow me to say it anything please. Same food all the time can lead to boredom land. Indeed. So, nava-k thought she might as well explore dishes from other parts of the world. Indeed. Teppanyaki Salmon (Grilled Salmon was a slow favourable start, and after watching Dosanko cooking show a couple of times, the enthusiasm for Japanese food spiraled further higher up. Okay so, why not? But this thing about going around to look for specific Japanese ingredients wasn't all that exciting. So, sometimes its about swiping the ingredients, pretty much to make do with our local Malaysian ingredients (Chilli Honey Sesame Chicken, Chinese Turnip Stew, Bean Sprout Omelette, Prawn Yogurt Salad & Winter Melon Soup). Anyway, I am not the type of person who will waste aplenty time to look for ingredients because time most of time can badly bite into my daily life. Therefore, local radish (Fish Curry Radish) came into the picture for these tender soft bite pieces of radish (Baby Shark Radish Curry) in a mildly salty soy broth, garnished with spring onion. 

250g (1 medium size) radish - remove skin, slice into thick pieces and slit in between.
1 tsp dashi stock - dissolved in 4 cup of water
2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp Japanese soya sauce
4 tbsp sake
3 tbsp mirin
Spring onions for garnishing

Place radish in saucepan with dashi mixture, sugar, soya sauce and sake.
Bring to boil (for 10mins), removing any impurities from the surface.
Reduce heat and simmer over very low heat, covered for 1 hour until radish is tender and lightly browned.
Stir in mirin.  
Off the heat.
Set aside for 10 min before serving.
Garnish with spring onion.
Show some love by trending alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
