Time: 40 minutes




          1. In a bowl with leftover rice or cooled cooked rice, add sesame seeds and Katsuobushi to mix. 
          2. With clean hands or a rice mold, shape the rice mixture into triangular rice balls, ensuring to press it firmly to maintain the shape. 
          3. Prepare the sauce by mixing Mirin and soy sauce. 
          4. Heat a grill net or a pan over medium-low heat, adding a drizzle of sesame oil. Carefully place the rice balls. 
          5. As the rice balls cook, periodically baste them with the sauce, allowing the surfaces to develop slight char. 
          6. Once both sides get desired crispness and charred, remove it from the heat.
