See videos below for how to make Hana Renkon 花れんこん (flower shaped lotus root) and Nejiri Ume ねじり梅 (plum flower shaped carrot).


2. Using sesame oil, pan fry the chicken until golden.


3. Add the vegetables and stir fry them. Then add dashi to the stir fry. Simmer for 10 minutes with a drop lid/ kitchen foil. (Take out some Nejiri Ume carrots at this stage for decoration purposes)


4. Add soy sauce, sake, mirin, and sugar and simmer for 10 minutes with a drop lid/ foil. Then remove the lid and continue to simmer for another 10 minutes until the liquid is reduced to one third.


Finally, to serve: cut the mangetout diagonally in half and decorate the dish with the mangetout and Nejiri Ume carrots.
