Ingredients: 1 serving

Plain cooked rice
180 g
Burdock root
30 g
Carrots
20 g
Japanese leek
5 cm
Flour
2 tablespoons
Katakuriko
1 tablespoon
Water
2 tablespoons
Beaten egg
1/2
Sesame oil
as needed
Mentsuyu
50 ml
Sugar
1/2 teaspoon
Katakuriko dissolved in water
as needed

Steps

1. Julienne the burdock root and carrots and soak in water. Finely chop the leek.
2. On parchment paper, using an egg ring mold or other circular mold, make 2 rice paddy "buns" and cool.
3. Once the rice has cooled, put the rice buns in a toaster oven or oven, browning the tops only.
4. Spread the drained vegetables out in bowl, add the flour, katakuriko, water, sesame oil, and 2/3 of the beaten egg, and mix together.
5. Heat oil to 170℃. Right before deep frying in oil, mix in the remaining 1/3 egg and pour the mixture into oil, forming a circular paddy-like shape. (It takes about 3 minutes to fry.)
6. Heat the mentsuyu and sugar in a pan, add the katakuriko dissolved in water, and stir to make a thick sauce. Coat vegetable fritters in the sauce, sandwich them between rice buns, and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

Based on the original Mos Burger rice burger.

I had a craving for it, so I fixed up a homemade one.
