Tri-Color Dango Dumplings For Girl's Day or Cherry Blossom Viewing

Tri-Color Dango Dumplings For Girl's Day or Cherry Blossom Viewing

I made these dango dumplings with my kids' favorite potatoes to celebrate Girl's Day.

Ingredients

Potatoes
2
Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Katakuriko
2 tablespoons
Decofuri (colored rice seasonings) or food colourings
as needed

Steps

1. Peel the potatoes, cut into bite-sized piece, and boil.
2. Transfer into a bowl, and mash with a masher.
3. Add the salt and katakuriko, and mix evenly. Divide into 3 portions.
4. 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.
5. Roll into small pieces so that you can skewer 3 colors on a toothpick.
6. Skewer one by one with a toothpick.
7. 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!
