Granny's Recipe for Simmered Kabocha

My grandmother used to make this for me whenever I visited her. It's pretty easy - how about serving this tonight?

Ingredients: Serves 2 to 3

Japanese pumpkin (Kabocha)
1/4
Water
200 ml
● Sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons
● Mirin
1 tablespoon
● Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
● Dashi stock granules
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Dice the kabocha into 3-4cm cubes.
2. Put water and kabocha in a small pan and boil.
3. When it comes to a boil, add the ● ingredients. Cover lightly with aluminum foil and simmer for 6 to 7 minutes over medium heat.
4. Turn the heat off and set it aside for 4 to 5 minutes with the lid still on. The flavor will soak in and make it even more delicious.
