How to make ★French Fried Daikon Radish★ 揚げ大根の作り方(EP146)

Posted on Posted in Vegetables

Today I am going to be making French fried Dicon radish.

Daikon radish is a very popular root vegetable in Japan this season.

In Oden, in miso soup, or grated, these are the authentic way to enjoy daikon radish.

Taste good, but sometimes I am tired of eating the same things over and over.

Crispy on the outside, soft and juicy on the inside. 

If you are also tired of french fried potato, you should definitely give it a try.


You’ll be surprised at the crispy exterior with a very juicy interior for the high water content.

The savory aroma from the garlic and soy sauce matches the natural sweetness and slightly bitter daikon.

Make this next time you make a sandwich or hamburgers.

Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
