Minced Chicken Wrapped with Fried Tofu

Minced Chicken Wrapped with Fried Tofu

This might be slightly healthy as it's simmered rather than fried in oil. Add vegetables of your choice.

Ingredients: About 4 servings

Minced meat (I used ground chicken breast)
About 200 g
Aburaage
5
● Tubed ginger
About 2 cm
● Sake
1 tablespoon
Katakuriko
As needed
For the sauce:
☆ Soy sauce
4 tablespoons
☆ Sugar
2 tablespoons
☆ Mirin
1 tablespoon
☆ Japanese-style dashi stock granules
1/2 tablespoon
☆ Water
400 ml
Vegetables of your choice (here are mine):
Burdock root
1/2
Carrot
1/2 (small)
Japanese leek
1 (small)

Steps

1. Open up the aburaage from Step 1. Dust with katakuriko using a tea strainer.
2. Roughly chop up the vegetables. Mix with the chopped ends of the aburaage from Step 1. Combine with the minced chicken and ● ingredients, then knead with your hands.
3. Open up the aburaage from Step 1. Coat with katakuriko using a tea strainer.
4. Top with the fillings prepped in Step 2 and wrap tightly.
5. Secure the end with a toothpick.
6. Add the ☆ ingredients in a pot and boil. Simmer the chicken wrap. Cover with a drop lid and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the pot, take out the toothpicks and slice into bite-sized pieces.
