Pizza Flavoured Corn, Mizuna Leaves and Cheese

Pizza Flavoured Corn, Mizuna Leaves and Cheese

This is a delicious pizza-style chijimi seasoned with ketchup and consommé stock that tastes great even without sauce.
The crispy cheese and the nice fragrance of wiener sausage make this dish perfect to serve as an appetizer with drinks.

Ingredients: 2 x 22 cm diameter chijimi

Corn
5 tablespoons
Mizuna leaves
1/3 bunch (refer to "Helpful Hints")
Wiener sausages
2
Pizza cheese
a large handful
●Cake flour
6 tablespoons
●Katakuriko
2 tablespoons
●Water
about 100-120 ml
●Consommé soup stock granules
1 teaspoon
●Ketchup
2 teaspoons
Vegetable oil
a large amount

Steps

1. Mix the ● ingredients in a bowl. You don't need to worry about the lumps so much.
2. Wash the mizuna leaves, cut into 2 cm lengths, and drain the excess water. Cut the wiener sausages into small pieces, and drain the excess water from the corn.
3. Add the Step 2 ingredients and cheese into the Step 1 bowl, and mix well until the mixture is no longer lumpy. If the batter is too thick, add a little bit of water.
4. Heat a large amount of oil in a frying pan. After giving the batter another quick mix, pour 1/2 of it into the pan and shallow-fry by pressing it down. When both sides become crispy, it's ready to be served.
5. Addendum: Since the water content of the ingredients affects the thickness of the batter, I allowed for excess. Please check the consistency of the batter during Step 3, and adjust the amount of water as necessary.
