Humble veggie dish dates back to Edo Period / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

Bookmark and Share
KINPIRA gobo, stir-fried slivers of burdock and carrots, is something you find sitting humbly in the corner of a packed bento lunch box or in a small bowl on the family dining table.
The burdock is shaved into thin shreds in western regions of Japan, while the root is cut into thin match-like sticks in the east. Its origin dates back to the Edo Period (1603-1867) when people ate it seasoned with hot pepper.

Burdock Lotus Root Kinpira(How to cook "Kinpira gobo") /YouTube Video

INGREDIENTS

* For burdock and carrot kinpira:
* 1 burdock (200 grams)
* Half carrot (50 grams)
* 2 tsp sesame oil
* 1 dried red pepper
* Seasoning: 1 Tbsp sake, 2 tsp sugar,
* 1 Tbsp mirin sweet sake, 1 Tbsp soy
* sauce, pinch of salt
* For konnyaku and lotus root kinpira:
* Half konnyaku (100 grams)
* 150 grams lotus root
* 1 Tbsp sesame oil
* 1 red pepper
* Same seasoning for burdock dish

Serves four.

METHOD

Scrub burdock clean and cut into 4-centimeter-long sticks about 5-millimeters square. Soak in water for five minutes, knead and drain. Cut carrots into thin 4-cm-long thin sticks.

Cook sesame oil, red pepper and burdock for three minutes over moderate heat. Reduce heat and place lid over pan. Stir occasionally and cook for three minutes. Add carrot sticks and stir fry until coated with oil. Add seasoning, cover with lid and cook for another three minutes. Remove lid and heat until the seasoning evaporates.

For the other kinpira, start by bringing konnyaku to a boil and then break it into bite-size pieces. Cut lotus root with the skin intact into coarse slices and soak in water.

Brown konnyaku in a pan containing sesame oil. Add red pepper and lotus root and cook. Add seasoning and cover with lid. Stir occasionally to the point where lotus root retains some of its crunchiness.
