karaage Miso Pan Fried Spaghetti

 Cooking 
 

Many readers have been asking me about Japanese fusion cuisine. I believe many mainstream Japanese cuisine is well known worldwide, while in Japan, Italian cuisine is very popular. 

The main ingredients in Italian cuisine are usually cheese and wine, together with other simple ingredients. Cheese tends to give a umami taste, this is similar to miso used in Japan.  Using this idea, I came up with this dish.

 

Ingredient

  • 1 egg
  • Spaghetti (1 portion)
  • Karaage ( 5 pieces)
  • Miso ( 1 tablespoon)
  • Konbo (1 piece) 
  • Mayonnaise (2 tablespoon)
  • Cooking Sake
  • Mirin 

 

This dish is very simple to cook, it usually takes less than 30 minutes. Other than the miso stock, spaghetti and egg, the rest are ready for microwave oven.  Karaage can be bought at most supermarket. They are pre-cooked and we just need to heat them up. The best way to cook karaage is to deep fried or pan fried, but it will be healthier to bake them in an oven. 

Cooking instruction

Egg

  1. Beat an whole egg with 2 teaspoon of Mirin.
  2. Heat the non stick pan with a little oil.
  3. Pour in the egg and lower to low heat.
  4. Roll the egg up.

Miso Stock

  1. Add 1 tablespoon of miso into 1 cup of water.
  2. Add in konbu and bring to boil.

Spaghetti

  1. Cook the spaghetti in boiling water until cook.
  2. Heat up a pan with little oil.
  3. Add in the boiled spaghetti and fry with miso stock.

Karaage 

  1. Heat them up either by baking or frying.

 

The sauce that go well with this dish is usually mayonnaise, but I saw a near to expiry curry sauce form a fast food chain and decided to use it.
