  • Serves:

    4

Ingredients

  • 1 package abura age (deep-fried tofu)
  • 1 cup (240 ml) dashi stock
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) sugar
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) mirin
  • 1 cup (240 ml) raw sushi rice
  • 3 tbsp (45 ml) black and white sesame seeds, toasted

Directions

  1. Place each piece of abura age between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and roll over with a rolling pin.
  2. Remove plastic wrap and cut abura age in half.
  3. Bring large pot of water to a boil over high heat.
  4. Add the abura age to boiling water, and boil for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Drain abura age and gently rinse under cold water. With both hands, squeeze out any excess water.
  6. In a large shallow pan, combine dashi, sugar, soy sauce, and mirin, and bring to a boil.
  7. Reduce heat to simmer, and add abura age.
  8. Cook approximately 12 minutes, or until the liquid has mostly evaporated and been absorbed by the abura age.
  9. Remove from heat and cool on a paper towel to remove excess liquid. Set aside.
  10. Once again, using both hands, squeeze out the excess liquid.
  11. Cook sushi rice according to package instructions, and cool down completely.
  12. Mix cooked rice and sesame seeds.
  13. Gently open the end of the sweet tofu pocket, and stuff with equal amounts of rice.
  14. Repeat with all tofu pockets.
  15. Serve cold or room temperature.
