♪Today's Simple Cooking♪ Ta-daaah!
Yes, I love potato~~♪ This morning, I made potato kimpira. Kimpira is stir fried julienne root veggie. You could use various veggies, for example, carrot, broccoli stem, celery, burdock, daikon etc. And it's okay to season it as you like. Mostly, it's seasoned with syoyu and sugar and mirin, so it goes well with a rice bento.
How to Make Potato Kimpira
1) Peel some potatoes and cut it into fine strips.
2) Stir-fry it with a little of vegetable oil and water until get translucent.
3) Season it with some of shoyu and sugar, and a bit of butter.
4) Sprinkle a little sesame seeds (if you have it).
(Butter matches potato perfectly. But you can add a little curry powder instead of butter.)
