Ingredients

125g black konnyaku yam cake
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tbsp shiokoji seasoning
1/2 tbsp mirin
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
pinch of shichimi chilli pepper

Recipe

1

Drain the konnyaku and cut into bite-sized pieces using a spoon.

2

Heat half of the sesame oil in a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat. Stir-fry the konnyaku for about 5 mins until coated with the oil. Add the shiokoji, mirin, soy sauce and 1/2 tbsp sugar to make the sauce. Stir-fry for another 10 mins or until the sauce has reduced and thickened. Remove from the heat.

3

Drizzle with the rest of the sesame oil and serve. Sprinkle with shichimi chilli pepper if you would like a little heat. Serve warm.
