Simple♪ Ochazuke-style Pickled Eggplant and Shiso Riceballs

I saw a commercial with the catchphrase, "I want to eat shiso and eggplant tsukemono!" So I made these with that in mind. The tempura crumbs are the secret ingredient♪.

Ingredients: 2 riceballs

Plain cooked rice
enough for 2 rice balls
Eggplant and shiso tsukemono
1 heaping tablespoon minced
Tempura crumbs
1 heaping tablespoon
Sesame seeds
one teaspoon
Salt
a small amount
Nori seaweed
2 sheets

Steps

1. Mince the shiso eggplant tsukemono. Pack it into riceballs and mix thoroughly.
2. Mold it to your preference, and wrap it with seaweed. It might make a great late-night snack for your tired husband.

Story Behind this Recipe

I bought some shiso eggplant tsukemono when I went to Kyoto. I opened the package, but this is not the sort of food that can be used all at once, so I thought up a way to eat it.
