Cha Dango 京の茶だんご | Japan

Dango is a Japanese dumpling made from mochiko, rice flour. There are many varieties of dango in Japan and normally three to four dango are often served on a skewer. The texture of the dango is very similar to chinese glutinous flour ball (tang yuan), especially the plain dango, not only the texture, the taste is almost close to tang yuan. On this post, I would like to share on the Cha Dango from Kyoto, Japan 京の茶だんご. It is a green tea flavour dango where only sells in Kyoto area. I have never see this brand of dango in Tokyo.

 

Pepper Lunch | Japan

It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.

 

Steam Chicken with Mushroom Using Cosway Steamer

Recently when we were doing house keeping, we found out that there is a unit of steamer given by Camus's mom. She bought it from Cosway many years ago but did not use it at all. We took it out from our store room and keep it at kicthen. Last two weeks, we used it to cook for our lunch and dinner. We found it quite useful and easy to use without dirty our kicthen, hence not much cleaning job after cook except for washing the steamer part by part after use. We first try with steam chicken with mushroon, the night before cook, we merinate two big chicken drumsticks with oyster sauce, soy sauce and pepper. To make the chicken more delicious, we added dried mushroom, red dates and ginger to the chicken on the day we cooked. Since the steamer contains three layers, we put in lady finger and corn too. With this simple and easy cooking way, we were able to enjoy our meal, and it was so delicious.

1339306361933Both my nieces' birthday is fall in May. This year, I make one cake for them only. Elder niece wants Smurf, younger niece wants Angry Bird. I can't find Smurf image icing, at the end I make ANGRY BIRD cake! When elder niece knew I don't do Smurf for her, with disappointed voice, she said: "you don't know how to draw meh? Use blue colour to draw out only mah." Oh no, to her, drawing Smurf on cake is so easy. But sorry girl, I am not at that level yet! I told her next time will make her Smurf cake, hopefully next time she will request for some other easier one.

For the cake, I chosen green tea, it is easier in preparation and I believe it suits most people taste bud.
