- 100g glutinous rice flour
- 100g tofu (silken or firm)
- 3tbsp sugar
- 1/2tbsp green tea powder (maccha powder)
- wooden skewers
- This particular dango will have two flavours, plain and green tea.
- 1) Place 50g of glutinous rice flour in two separate bowls. Add 1.5tbsp of sugar into each bowl and mix. In one of the bowls, add 1/2tbsp of green tea powder and mix. (You can add more or less green tea powder, depending on your choice).
- 2) Add 50g of tofu into each bowl, breaking and mixing the tofu with the flour. Add a small amount of water into each bowl until it becomes a nice dough (it should be the texture of playdough - if it's too runny, add more glutinous rice flour).
- 3) Once you've prepared the doughs, make small round balls by rolling them in your hand in a circular motion. Each dough should make roughly 10-15 small balls.
- 4) Boil the dango balls in water for approximately 3-5 minutes. You will know when the dango is cooked, as the ball will rise up to the surface and float when it's ready.
- 5) Once the dangos are cooked, place them immediately in ice-cold water to cool. After cooling, drain the water.
- 6) Place dangos on the skewer, alternating the two flavours as you go. You can place as many or as little dango as you like on each skewer.
- 7) Serve immediately, or place in the fridge to keep it cool as a nice dessert or snack! :)
- There's many other dango flavours you can try - if you can get peanut powder or sesame powder from your local asian grocery store, try coating the plain dango in this powder to give it a nice taste!
