How to make “KINPIRA burdock”


“KINPIRA” is a traditional Japanese dish using with burdock root.
This time, I introduce how to make it.
Burdock is rich in dietary fibre and is very nutritious.
Even if you don’t like the bitterness, you can enjoy it with “Kinpira”.


100 g Burdock (I prepared frozen one.)
100 g carrot
1 tbsp. Sugar
2 tbsp. Soy sauce
2 tbsp. Sake
2 tbsp. Mirin (rice wine)
1 tsp. Sesame oil (if any)
A little white sesame(if any)


Step 1

Mix sugar , Sake , Mirin and soy sauce .

Step 2


Cut carrots (and burdock) into thin rectangles.

Step 3


Put the oil into the pan.
Add burdock and carrot , and saute them until it become soft .

Step 4

Add sauce into the pan .
Simmer until the sauce down.

Step 5
Sprinkle white sesame as you like.


I get frozen burdock at Chinese supermarkets and Asian merchandise stores.
Very occasionally you can find it in a large supermarket.


I always procure many ingredients from Ocado.
Many Japanese use it.
You can get a lot of Japanese ingredients.


When you leave the UK on your way home or on a business trip, you must take a test before you travel.
