Sakura mochi (Domyoji mochi)

sakura mochi(domyoji mochi)

I have already introduced you Tokyo style sakura mochi.
In this time, I introduce you kansai-area style sakura mochi.
It is called "Domyoji mochi.

Sweet red bean paste is covered with dough which is made from domyoji flour, sugar, food red and water, and wrapped with sakura (cherry blossom) leaf which is pickled in salt.
Domyoji flour is made by steaming mochi rice, later dried, and ground coarsely.

Is this made for a special occasion or everyday dinner? It looks and sounds interesting!

Thanks all!

I think that originally,sakura mochi is for girl's day(March ,3).
So we often have it in spring.
But in these days, we can have it all season.
