Homemade Strawberry Daifuku

Homemade Strawberry Daifuku

You cut the strawberries, so you don't need uniform sized strawberries. You don't make a mess when eating these, so they're great for children too.

Ingredients: 6 daifuku

Shiratamako
50 g
Sugar
50g
Water
80 ml
Azuki bean paste
3 tablespoons
Large strawberries
3
Katakuriko
as needed

Steps

1. Cut the strawberries into 2cm cubes. Sprinkle sugar (not listed).
2. Put the shiratamako flour, sugar and water in a heatproof dish and mix well. Microwave on high for 1 and 1/2 minutes. Take out and beat well. Microwave for 1 minute again. Beat well and repeat this process twice.
3. Transfer the dough into a large plate dusted with katakuriko. Divide the into 6 portions using kitchen scissors.
4. Pat dry Step 1 with paper towels and stir in the adzuki beans. Do not squash the strawberries. Divide into 6 portions.
5. Spread out Step 3, and place Step 4 into the spread out dough, wrap neatly and seal well. You can make these in 10 minutes once you get used to it. These are homemade strawberry daifuku.

Story Behind this Recipe

If you use large whole strawberries and wrap with azuki bean paste, they will be too big and they won't look as cute. Just cut them up and wrap them the way I'll show you here.
