Dango Jiru (Dumpling Miso Soup) Vegan Recipe | Japanese Cooking Video

Dango Jiru or Dago Jiru is a Traditional dumpling soup from many prefectures in Japan. Depending on prefecture, it is called differently. For instance in Ōita it is called Dango Jiru and in Kumamoto it is called Dago Jiru, etc... The shape of dumplings differs from house to house. Some people take time to stretch out the dumplings into long Udon-like noodle shape. Some people make it into flat round shape. Some people just tear it into the soup. Moreover, some people put chicken and vegetables. Most people use Taro potato, Daikon radish, and Gobo (burdock root) but they are not a must. Please take it easy and try it out in the way you like! Fun to make with kids as well 😉




FYI: You can use any Dashi product. I used this one. RIKEN Kombu Dashi Powder (リケン 素材力だし こんぶだし)

I think getting an oil spray was my mistake 😅 Spraying will make a mess... You can toss with some oil in a bowl if you like to coat potatoes evenly 👍

How to Make Kitsune Udon (juicy and tasty deep-fried Tofu) Recipe | Japanese Cooking Video

Light, fluffy, and juicy Aburaage (salty sweet tasty deep-fried Tofu pouch) makes Kitsuneudon absolutely delicious 😉 You don't need to simmer it down. This is the BEST recipe you may want to follow 👍




Kitsune Udon literary means "fox Udon" in Japanese. Because Aburaage is fox's favorite food in the folktale.


Simple yet delicious, typical kids' meal as well 😋

---------------------------------

How to Make Kitsune Udon (juicy and tasty deep-fried Tofu) Recipe


Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 20min
Number of servings: 2

Ingredients
2 frozen Udon noodles *I used TableMark (Katokichi), any brand is OK
2 Aburaage (deep-fried Tofu pouch)
A
* 100ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 1 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 1 tbsp. sugar
* 1 tbsp. soy sauce
Kaketsuyu (Udon soup)
* 500ml Dashi broth (using packaged dashi powder saves time)
* 2 tbsp. Mirin (sweet Sake)
* 1 tsp. soy sauce
* 1/2 tsp. salt
chopped green onions
Shichimi-togarashi (seven flavor chili pepper) if you like

Directions:
1. In a pot, make 600ml Dashi broth: 100ml for Aburaage, 500ml for Kaketsuyu. I used Kayanoya Dashi
2. Cut Aburaage into half. Put Aburaage in boiling water for 3 minutes to remove the excess oil. Drain in a strainer, when it becomes cool enough to handle, press with your hands to drain well. By removing excess oil, Aburaage becomes very light and soaks the seasonings very well.
3. In a small pot, put A and Aburaage, then cover with Otoshibuta (wooden drop-lid or you can substitute it with a small plate). Simmer for 7~8 minutes then stop the heat. Do not simmer it down to make it juicy and fluffy.
4. Put Kaketsuyu (Udon soup) in a pot then bring to a boil.
5. Bring water to a boil in a large pot, if your pot is small cook Udon 1 serving at a time, cook Udon on medium high heat as directed on its package. (Cooking time was 1 minute for TableMark frozen Udon) You shake the noodles in boiling water then stop the heat when they are separated.
6. Wash with cold water to remove the slimy texture. Put Udon again in boiling water to make it warm. Using the edge of a serving bowl, slide in the noodles.
7. Pour in some Kaketsuyu (Udon soup), place Aburaage, and garnish with chopped green onions. Put some Shichimi-togarashi (seven flavor chili pepper) if you like.

I love using Kayanoya Dashi. Vegan/Vegetarian people can use Kombu or Vegetable Dashi broth for the dipping sauce 👍
