煮物 Nimono (Simmered Dish)

Daikon, Shrimp-Chicken Meatball, Seaweed and Black Mushroom

Now this is a big blooper of mine, to tell you the truth. First of all, I was going to use turnip but couldn’t find one anywhere, so I ended up with substituting it with daikon radish. Second, I was going to use shirodashi instead of dark soy, because I knew that dark-soy would ruin the color of daikon and shrimp-chicken meat balls. But before I realized it, my hands disconnected from my brain added dark soy to this soup. ※■#△!The taste wasn’t too bad, but look how brown the daikon and meat balls turned out! :(
