Fried Hanpen Nuggets

Fried Hanpen Nuggets

I made the hanpen a nice, small size for bento and fried them up.
My family members rave over this.

Ingredients: 1 hanpen worth

Green onions
to taste
Salt and pepper
to taste
Vegetable oil
as needed


1. Put the hanpen in a vinyl bag and pound them with a rolling pin. It's okay if some small lumps remain.
2. To the pounded hanpen from Step 1, add finely chopped green onions, salt, and pepper, then evenly blend the ingredients together by massaging the bag. Cut a small opening in one end of the bag, squeeze out a small amount into a pan with heated oil, then fry both sides.
3. How about using this recipe for today's bento? Don't they look cute?

Story Behind this Recipe

I came up with these since I wanted some kind of hanpen bento item.
My four-year-old loves these so much and gets really excited when I made them.
