Simple Simmered Fried Tofu and Komatsuna Without Water

This is my mother's recipe. All you have to do is chop the ingredients, put them in a pot and boil. Make it in a flash.

Abura-age
1.5-2 slices
Komatsuna
1 bunch
Carrot (optional)
1
★Sugar
1 tablespoon
★Mirin
1 tablespoon
★Soy sauce
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Roughly chop the komatsuna and cut the carrot into thin strips. Run the abura-age under hot water to remove the surface oil and cut into thin strips. The carrot and tofu should be cut in 4-5 cm long strips.
2. Heat the ingredients from Step 1 and the ★ ingredients in a saucepan. If you don't have space in the saucepan, add the ★ ingredients after the other ingredients have cooked.
3. Once the komatsuna and carrot are tender, the dish is ready to serve.
