Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 3


  • 1/2 pack Soft tofu
  • 1 1/2 cups Rice flour
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 tablespoon Shoyu
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 1 tablespoon Katakuriko or corn starch to thicken (optional)


  • Mix tofu and rice flour until smooth.
  • Roll the tofu and rice flour mixture in the palm of your hands, making bite sized dango balls (about 1.5 to 2 inches).
  • Bring water to a boil. Place dango balls in the boiling water. Once they float up, wait another 2-3 minutes, then place them in cold water for 2-3 minutes.
  • For the Mitarashi sauce, add sugar, honey, shoyu and water in a saucepan. Stir over low heat until the sauce starts to thicken. (Optional: add corn starch or katakuriko to the pan for a thicker sauce)
  • Serve the dango with the Mitarashi sauce and enjoy!
