Ogre Dumplings (Oni-Manjuu)

Ogre Dumplings (Oni-Manjuu)

I made fluffy dumplings by adding milk to the dough!

Ingredients: 14-16 pieces

Sweet potato
200-250 g
Cake flour
200 g
Baking powder
1 tablespoon
80-90 g
160 g


1. Peel the sweet potatoes, cut into 1 cm chunks, and soak in water for 10 minutes.
2. Sift the flour and baking powder. Add the sugar and mix together.
3. Add the milk to Step 2 and mix with a rubber spatula. Add the sweet potatoes and mix again. Line your steamer with kitchen parchment paper or a damp kitchen towel that has been thoroughly wrung out.
4. Use a spoon to scoop the batter from Step 3 into the heated steamer (it'll be hot, so remove the top tray and add the dough).
5. Steam for 15 minutes over high heat.
6. Once steamed, place them on a colander, sieve, or similar, and fan with a handheld fan while they're still hot.
