This simple dish is surprisingly tasty though it requires little time and basic seasoning. The key is to cook the radish until it is soft and transparent. Happycall IH Vacuum Pot is able to shorten the cooking time. Simply cook for 15 - 20 minutes and then wait for an additional 15 - 20 minutes.

Usually the process takes a few hours. Let the dish stay fresh in vacuum mode. With a normal pot, simply extend the cooking time until the radish becomes transparent.

Many of the ingredients can be found in Asian grocery stores or on Woolworths online.

Ingredients

  • 1 white radish
  • 500g of pork mince
  • Dried shaved bonito

Seasoning

Instructions

  1. Peel the white radish to make it sweeter.
