Peel and cut up the potato. Put in a heatproof bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5-7 minutes.
Mash the potatoes while they are piping hot. Add katakuriko and mix and knead well with a pestle until you have a smooth dough.
Divide the dough into 8 portions, and form each portion into a flattened ball.
Heat oil in a frying pan and pan fry the dumplings until browned on both sides. Add the combined ● ingredients, coat the dumplings with the sauce, and it's done.
Story Behind this Recipe
I received potatoes from Hokkaido, so I made these.
In Step 1, soak the potato in a bowl of water briefly before cooking! In Step 4, cook the dumplings until they are slightly browned. They taste better that way when they're coated with the sauce, which will flavor the dumplings. If you like lots of sauce, double the amount of the sweet-savory sauce.
