Tagine Donabe...Chicken Meat Balls in Sweet & Sour Tomato Sauce

With one extra step of deep-frying the potatoes and chicken meat balls before adding them to the donabe (tagine-style donabe, "Fukkura-san"), the flavor of this dish become so extraordinary.

*Don't use the donabe for deep-frying.

This big-flavor dish is also very fun to make. I posted the recipe on toiro's website.

Once the lid of "Fukkura-san" is opened, the dish was prettied up with the garnish (chopped scallions and mitsuba). The dish is well-balanced with different kinds of vegetables.

The side dish I made was deep-fried green beans and garlic.
