Potato Dumplings with Sweet & Savory Sauce

This is an easy sweet snack that makes an appearance at our house in the fall and winter! The dumplings are very dense and sticky and the sweet-savory sauce is so good.

Ingredients: 8 dumplings

2 medium (250 g)
2 tablespoons
Vegetable oil
2 tablespoons
For the sweet-savory sauce:
● Sugar
1 tablespoon
● Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
● Mirin
1 tablespoon


1. Peel and cut up the potato. Put in a heatproof bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 5-7 minutes.
2. Mash the potatoes while they are piping hot. Add katakuriko and mix and knead well with a pestle until you have a smooth dough.
3. Divide the dough into 8 portions, and form each portion into a flattened ball.
4. 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.
