1/2 Photos of Japanese Style Simmered Sweet Kabocha
Japanese Delight's Note:
This is a Japanese style sweet and savory pumpkin recipe. Kabocha has slightly sweet taste, and it is cooked in many different ways in Japanese cuisine. For example, tempura is a popular way to cook kabocha. Cut kabocha into thin slices to make tempura. Also, simmering is a common way. Kabocha tend to keep its shape even if it's simmered. This is a great side dish to accompany a Japanese meal.
