Shiokoji Karaage Bento

Today's bentos contain shiokoji karaage chicken (leftover), bacon-rolled asparagus, tamagoyaki, a mini gratin (store bought) and grapefruit. I bought purple asparagus for the first time. I amazed how it turned normal green after boiling! That was kind of a bummer because I thought it would stay purple to the last LOL. I think the purple asparagus is a bit stringier than green one. The gratin cup is a frozen food that Yuppi loved as a preschooler. She still loves having it in her bento. By the way, if you use shiokoji as a fried-food seasoning you should watch out while frying because shiokoji get burned easily. My karaage almost got black phew! I recommend low to medium low heat.
