I turned my kids' favorite chikuwa into Isobe fritters. It cooked up in a flash with no splattered grease! You can use it for bento or as a dish for breakfast. It is cheap, simple, and delicious.
I wanted to make isobe age without sputtering grease on hot days.
If you have a pan with a lid, then you can easily make these with no sputtering grease.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
