Marinating the burdock roots overnight makes the dish more delicious. The crunchy texture is amazing. This pounded burdock root dish has plenty of sesame seeds.
It was my first time making osechi (New Year's feast) since I got married. My mother taught me this recipe. I wonder if this is from my mother's parents.
Roasting and roughly grounding white sesame seeds boosts the flavour and make the dish more delicious. Marinate the burdock roots while they are still hot.
