Dango (sweet rice dumpling)

There is the difference of dango and manjyu.
Dango is made from the flour of cereals (rice and glutinous rice) and is a food that is formed like a small ball and is boiled or is steamed and is served with seasoning of bean paste, kinako or sweet soy sauce.

On the other hand, manjyu is sweets that sweet red bean paste etc. is covered with a thin wrapping of dough made by wheat flour and is steamed.

We often eat “Hanami dango (blossom viewing dumpling)”, “Tsukimi dango (moon viewing dumpling)”, “Higan dango (the equinox dumpling) and “Mitarashi dango (a dumpling covered with kuzu sauce seasoned with soy sauce and sugar on a skewer)”.

The ingredient of dumpling is the flour of cereals.
