It is an easy recipe for making dango for cherry blossom viewing. The shiratama dango contains tofu so it is very soft. These are perfect for cherry blossom viewing and great to enjoy with tea.
I arranged some famous hanami dango from Akita Prefecture.
When melting the yokan to make mizu-yokan in Step 5, it may be difficult to coat the shiratama dango if the mizu-yokan does not contain enough liquid. Adjust the liquid as needed.I used neri-yokan time, but you can also use ogura-yokan or kuri-yokan for variety.
