1. Cut the potato and the carrot into thick strips.
2. Cook Step 1 in sesame oil. Add the water, dashi granules, and seasoning ingredients. Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes.
3. You can eat this right away, but if you wait about 30 minutes and reheat it right before eating, the seasoning will settle into the potatoes even more.

Story Behind this Recipe

My busy mother used to whip this up when I was younger.
I adjusted the seasoning to my own taste.
