How to Make Momiji Oroshi (Spicy Grated Daikon Radish)

If you add homemade momiji oroshi to your hot pot, it'll become spicy and delicious.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Daikon radish
10 cm worth
Red chili pepper


1. Since this is for 2 servings, I used a quarter of a daikon radish. If making more, use an entire one. Skew a hole in the middle with a cooking chopstick.
2. Remove the seeds of a chili pepper, soak in water, and cover the tip of the chopstick.
3. Skew the chopstick with the chili pepper into the daikon. If using an entire daikon, stick 5 chili peppers into the round.
4. Remove the chopstick and grate on the side with the chili pepper.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made momiji oroshi at home because the color of the bottled store-bought version looked unnatural.
