Last weekend, I cooked one of my favorite sweet – Mitarashi-dango (Japanese sweet dumpling) .

Dango is like Japanese style of dumpling made from mochiko (rice flour). Mitarashi dango is the dumpling covered with a sweet soy sauce syrup.

My recipe use Tofu instead of water to make dango. This is great snack for kids.
