Mitarashi Dango


Dango are small balls which are made by kneading rice flour and water, and steaming or boiling them.

As for Mitarashi Dango.
We usually, fix some dango (three to five) on a bamboo skewer.
Grill it lightly.
And cover it with soy sause and sugar besed sauce.

The sauce is made by mixing soy sauce, mirin(sweet sake), sugar, Kuzuko or potato starch, and water, and so on, and simmering them.

Ah, I remember this food well because one of Naruto's character is named Mitarashi Anko and she liks eating dango a lot. But dango could also mean 'boys' right?

nobu said...

No, boys"男子" normary read "danshi".

haha, I suppose you said about manga"Boys over flowers".

Oridinary, japanese saying "hana yori dango" means "dimpling rather than flowers".
But, The author replaced "dimpling" to "boys".
and forcedly applid the pronunciation "dango".

Ya, that's what I read..."Dumplings over flowers."

Maybe why a friend forcibly said too "dango san kyoudai" about my 3kids and I was thinking she might thought my kids are food (or very chubby ones)...;-) I kept wondering why she said dango then I read that in the Manga and J-dorama page...(Btw, I am a fan of Matsujun). Thanks for the additional explanation.

大変おいしいでした。

nobu said...

leica さんは、日本の顔文字もご存知なんですね。

Sherry said...

Yes,, Nabu, it is Jun Kaneko in US. I have met him, long ago. HIs work is shown in Seattle, too. I know he worked in Finland years ago at a large pottery place there.
Some of his work looks like large blown glass vases, large, I mean! I love his work. Do you know it?

Also I have met Akio Takemori. I hope I spelled that right. I saw a presentation by him once, too, and it was so familial, his outlook. I think he lives on Vashon Island not far from Seattle.
