Taro with Sweet & Spicy Miso Paste

February 04, 2021 / by Junko


Another Japanese side dish, these taro potato dengaku go really well with Japanese sake.
We had Sho try the method of easily peeling the taro potatoes by putting them into the microwave and then using paper towels, gently peel off the skin.
We found out that how well this method works depends on the taro potatoes^^;

[ Ingredients ]
・ Satoimo (Taro) … 8 pieces
(Miso paste)
・ Miso … 1 tbsp
・ Mirin … 1 tbsp
・ Doubanjiang (Chinese chili paste) … 1/2 to 1 teaspoon
・ Sugar … 1 tsp
・ Roasted white sesame (for decoration)
・ Picks … 2
