This is the Goya no Tsukudani (Salty Sweet Bitter Melon for rice) that my grandma recommended in this video ;)
You must try it out!!! It is really good and goes great with white rice. The bitter taste of Goya and spicy taste of ginger match up very well. Using Mizkan's Ajipon is the key to this refreshing salty sweet flavor. Soft squid makes it really tasty. Perfect side dish for rice!!!
BTW, my mom bought me the dried shredded squid at Tsukiji Outer Market ;) You can see the clip in the end of this video~
Goya no Tsukudani (Salty Sweet Bitter Melon for rice)
Difficulty: Very Easy
Number of servings: N/A
2 Goya (500g = 1.1lb. bitter melon)
100g (3.5oz.) ginger
50g (1.7oz.) dried shredded squid
* 100ml Mizkan Ajipon
* 75ml Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 25g sugar
2 tbsp. toasted white sesame seeds
1. Cut both ends of Goya, then cut in half lengthwise. Scrape off the seeds with a spoon and slice into thin half rounds. Cook in a boiling water for about 1-2 minutes, then drain well. *in this way you can remove the bitter taste of the Goya.
2. Thinly slice ginger. Tear and cut dried shredded squid into bite-sized pieces.
3. Place A in a large pot and bring to a boil. Then add the Goya, ginger, and dried shredded squid, then cook on medium until the liquid is gone.
4. Cool in a strainer, then toss with toasted white sesame seeds.
You can put it in an airtight container or a Ziploc bag and keep in the fridge for a few months.
