Ninjin Shirishiri Bento
This bento turned out ORANGE in color! I mean, it has no greens. So at least I used a green paper cup to give an accent to it. I think it worked haha! What I want to feature today is Ninjin shirishiri. Ninjin is carrot, shirishiri is shredding. Ninjin shirishiri is shredded carrot stir-fried along with egg which is one of Okinawan popular dishes. I've posted it quite a while back too, but am doing again because it's really a good okazu that even carrot haters can eat!
How to make Ninjin shirishiri
1) Shred a carrot with food grater.
2) Stir-fry it with a little oil until as tender as you like. Add a little water meanwhile if you want.
3) Add a beaten egg, and keep stir-frying until the egg is done.
4) Season it as you like.
Options --- Canned tuna, ham, bacon, chikuwa etc. (I used bacon this time.)
Seasonings --- Salt, shoyu, sugar, black pepper etc. (I only used shiokoji and salt this time, but it turned out so good.)
By the way, that gray stuff is simmered foods (chicken, konnyaku and burdock). It's yuck looking due to the color from the burdock, but tastes really good, I swear heehee.
