Decofuri (colored rice seasonings) or food colourings
Peel the potatoes, cut into bite-sized piece, and boil.
Transfer into a bowl, and mash with a masher.
Add the salt and katakuriko, and mix evenly. Divide into 3 portions.
Color one portion pink with "decofuri" rice seasoning or food coloring. Leave one portion as is. Color the remaining portion green with "decofuri." You can use natural substitutes like spinach, instead.
Roll into small pieces so that you can skewer 3 colors on a toothpick.
Skewer one by one with a toothpick.
Shallow-fry with a generous amount of oil! It makes the dango dumplings crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!
Story Behind this Recipe
I made these dango because my kids love potatoes and I wanted to make something cute with them!
If the mixture is too wet, slightly increase the amount of katakuriko.
