I have a Kiriboshi Daikon recipe which is dried daikon radish recipe. Kiri mean cut and Boshi is Hosu, mean dry it. Cut and dried daikon is called ‘Kiriboshi-daikon'(literally, cut-dried daikon) which is a common method of preserving food in Japan. Read more about Daikon, go to this Wiki page.
You have to soak dried daikon in the water for a while and cook it with some other vegetables, or you can use it for salad. I like to cook with other vegetables because all those juice from vegetables and dashi soak into the Kiriboshi daikon and make it delicious harmony.
How does Dried Daikon look like?
Soak in the water about 10 to 15 min, until daikon soak the water and no hard and dry parts left.
