Ingredients

Shiratamako
100 g
Tofu or water
about the consistency of your earlobe
Boiled adzuki beans
as needed
Katakuriko
to coat your hands

Steps

1. Make a dough to mix shiratamako and tofu (or water) (refer to Recipe ID: 988641) It should be a bit softer than your earlobes).
2. Coat your hands with katakuriko, spread the dough thinly with your hands, and wrap the boiled anko (there's too much in the photo that it ripped).
3. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes, and serve with the cooking water. It's done. It is very soft, and different from normal mochi balls.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a confectionary with shiratamako wrapped in anko. The authentic version is apparently wrapped with lard.
