Mukago Takikomi Gohan

Mukago Takikomi Gohan (Pilaf-like rice cooked with air potatoes)

Mukago are small bulbs on wild yam vines, which I have tasted only once before. They do taste like potatoes with a slightest hint of bitterness. I used briefly blanched mukago, ginkgo nuts and shimeji mushrooms for my takikomi gohan.

I used this recipe (downsized to half, omitted salmon) and cooked the rice the same way as I cook chicken takikomi gohan, but maybe I should have cooked it shorter this time. The bottom was burned a little. But the taste was soooooooooooooo good! :)
