400g Japanese taros

1 cup dashi
1 1/2 tbsp — sake
1 1/2 tbsp — mirin (sweet cooking sake)
3 tbsp — sugar
Yellow-colored yuzu rind

  1. Wash taros thoroughly, cut both ends off, and peel.
  2. Place the taros, dashi, sake, mirin and sugar in a pot, cover with a drop lid, and heat over medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes, and add soy sauce, and simmer it down.
  3. When the taros in the pot become tender, shake the pot to tumble the taros, coating them with glaze.

  • Choose smaller taros of an equal size. These types of taros will be more likely to retain their shape while simmering.
