Dried Daikon Radish Recipe, Kiriboshi daikon

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.

Cut vegetables like this. Actually cut like almost same size so it is easily pick up by chopsticks.
If you use dried Shiitake mushrooms, you should soak in the water, too. Same as dried daikon, 10 to 15 min.

You will see the fish cake. I buy this and freez it. It is handy to cook with for those dried Japanese ingredients. I buy them and freeze them.

You may use the dried shiitake mushrooms.  That case, soak dried shiitake in the water about 30 min. and cut and use it.  I put picture here for dired mushroom (left).

You cook vegetables first. Put oil in the pan and carrots first, then Kiriboshi daikon. When you cook them put all other ingredients and star fry it. When it cooked, put dashi water and other sauce ingredients.
