Scrub the burdock root, cut into matchsticks and soak in water. Rinse until water runs clear. Cut carrots into matchsticks as well. Measure out the sugar, mirin and soy sauce. Heat sesame oil in a pan and saute burdock, carrot and red chili on medium heat until carrot is soft. Burdock root will remain a bit harder. Add in sugar and mirin first. Mix well for a minute or two, then add in tamari sauce. Stir fry until tamari sauce begins to caramelize and gives off a nice smell. Stop heat and sprinkle on sesame seeds. Goes well with rice and keeps well for leftovers and lunches
