Kakiage Bento



I made Kakiage bento today. Kakiage is a kind of mixed tempura - you can use various vegetables and seafood which later would be dipped into tempura batter before deep-frying. I had never eaten kakiage until yesterday when I saw a kakiage bento being sold in Maruyasu - a sushi chain restaurant in Frankfurt. I enjoyed the bento so much that I promised myself to make kakiage the next day for lunch :). So here it is... I got the recipe from Nami's wonderful website - which is full with delicious Japanese recipes.

The bento box contains steamed rice topped with furikake and umeboshi, cocktail shrimps, fried breaded-shrimps, kakiage and salad.

Do you notice anything special from my bento photos today :) :) :)?



You don't notice it? Look again!
