  • [A]

    • 2 tbsp mirin
    • 1 tbsp miso
  • 2 tbsp chirimenjako
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

Directions

1

Cut the Manganji peppers in half along their lengths, then remove the stems and seeds. Cut them in half again along the width. In a bowl, combine the ingredients listed under [A].

2

Preheat a saucepan with sesame oil at medium heat. Place the chirimenjako in the pan and fry until crunchy.

Add the cut Manganji peppers and continue to stir-fry. Once the oil has coated the ingredients evenly, add water, cover the pan and steam-cook for about 3 min while mixing occasionally.

Once the ingredients have become softer, mix in the miso mixture. Occasionally stir until the liquid is almost cooked off, then serve on a plate.
