How to make it

  • Place tofu on a heat resistant plate after covering it with paper towel, and heat for one minute with a 600W microwave. Chop long onions into small pieces. Peel the skin off daikon radish and grate it. Cut green onion into 7mm wide pieces with kitchen scissors. Tear lettuce into bite size with hands. Remove the stem of tomatoes.

  • Toss daikon radish and green onion together

  • Knead chicken mince and soy sauce in a bowl until it become pasty. Add the tofu, long onion, egg and breadcrumbs and mix together. Divide it into two, and make into oval shape pieces while compressing between hands to release excess air. Then coat the balls with rice powder gently.

  • Grease a fry pan with sesame oil and heat at medium heat. Grill the surface of the balls (3), cover the pan and roast them for 7 minutes.

  • Pour (2) onto the rissoles on a plate, with lettuce, petit tomatoes, and ponzu sauce. Pour the ponzu sauce over the steak before eating.
