Sanshoku dango


Sanshoku dango (three-coloured rice dumplings) are a type of wagashi (traditional Japanese sweet) eaten at cherry blossom festivals to celebrate spring. The sweet, sticky dumplings are made from rice flour and, like mochi, are so chewy that they take hours to finish! If you love cute craft, check out kawaii crocheted versions of this popular sweet on etsy.

    These look pretty yummy good – although I’m not sure about the texture. And definitely not as kawaii as my doughnut sticky tape !!
