I often cook this dish, sometimes with fish or beef, but Daikon itself is very nice. Many Australians don't cook radishes, but they are so beautiful when simmered, stewed or even stir-fried. This was a difficult one to come up with a proper name. In Japanese, it's called Nimono [煮物] which is a style of Japanese cooking. It could be interpreted as "simmered or stewed things (=food)." For some reasons, they both don't sound like a perfect translation for the nimono.
