Since summer is around the corner, our body should be ready for burning day. In my home country, nagaimo is one of the best food to fight heat.
In my home country’s summer, the amount of food people eat decrease because the humidity and the temperature rob our power. But nagaimo has power to digest food efficiently, it is considered as the best helper to survive scorching summer.
When you grate nagaimo, it become very slimy. In Japanese, we use toro or toro-toro or similar word to describe slimy texture stuff, so most of food with grated nagaimo is called tororo. When you buy nagaimo from the store, it may be gigantic. In fact, mine was over a yard size and it was the smallest one. I asked people who work at the store, but it was the tiniest one they could find, so I took home the one named tiniest-in-giant-world.
I used to love playing with slime when I was a kid, but looks like I love slimy food as well. So anyway, try this and stay healthy. Don’t lose summer!
