  • About


  • 700 ml dashi
  • 4 small daikon radishes (100 g each), skins on


  1. Peel the daikon thickly then cut into 2 cm thick rings. Peel around the edge of each ring to create a curved finish. Carve a cross shape into the top of each with a knife to avoid shrinkage.
  2. Blanch in water left over from washing rice until a bamboo skewer can pass through the daikon without too much resistance, then place in cold water to cool.</
