One question I have when you make the cold version: my dango came out very rubbery. Cut into 4 small pieces and toast in the toaster oven until puffed up. Earthy matcha tea, nutty red bean paste and juicy strawberries infuse a classically French recipe with the unmistakable flavours of Japan. Breakfast! Sooo yummy and easy to make!!!!

Matcha Zenzai is a delicious Japanese red bean paste with soft mochi served in green tea soup. I added a bit more details but hot water should be 80-90C (176-194F). Anko or an (餡) as it is sometimes called, is a sweet paste that comes in red, green and many shades in between. It’s really delicious and definitely worth spending the extra effort. One, because I absolutely love the way it tastes. Required fields are marked *. Is there anything I can do to make it softer? Same question for the rice flour (in your Dango recipe) can I use the Asian rice flour? Thanks so much for your kind feedback. It’s a perfect little treat for tea time with your friends or after-dinner dessert for your family. You only need azuki beans, sugar, water, and salt! If you have a question about this recipe, ask it here to get a reply from the cookpad community. Hope you and your family are enjoying Japan! Add enough butter to lightly coat pan (~1 teaspoon), or use oil spray. This unique sweet can be enjoyed hot or cold. Best wishes to you and your family! I also can’t get the shiratamako page to work (it says too many redirects?? Earthy matcha tea, nutty red bean paste and juicy strawberries infuse a classically French recipe with the unmistakable flavours of Japan. Homemade anko does taste much better than store-bought so if you have time, I hope you will try my Homemade Anko recipe. Pour the green tea and garnish with a little bit of anko. Just matcha, because we want to let it shine. Add milk, sugar and matcha powder to bowl. Apparently, that wasn’t enough. Were they cooked through? If you make this recipe, snap a pic and hashtag it #justonecookbook — We love to see your creations on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter! Put 1- 1½ Tbsp sugar in a medium bowl and sift 1 Tbsp matcha powder in a fine sieve to remove any lumps. Now off to buy Macha and tonight we have dessert. Isn’t that amazing? Matcha Mung Bean Paste is great to be used as filling for Matcha Snow Skin Mooncake. Zenzai usually includes toasted (plain) mochi or Shiratama Dango. I made anko balls with the matcha-an paired with sakura-an. For Girl's Day, serve filled with sakura blossom paste. Matcha Zensai can be served cold during the hot summer days or served hot in the cold winter months. This recipe is for two, and each person should have at least 120 ml (half cup) of soup (matcha). Hi Marie! Pick them up and soak in ice water to cool. I’m excited to try this~~! Today I made the green tea version Matcha Zenzai 抹茶ぜんざい, which is also very popular in Japanese cafes and restaurants that serve sweets. The traditional zenzai uses azuki red bean for the soup but this zenzai uses matcha (green tea powder) instead. Because red bean paste is most commonly used in a wide range of confectionery. OMG this is my new favorite food! Apr 3, 2020 - Explore Allie_09's board "I looooovvvee red bean paste and matcha :3" on Pinterest. I wanted to make cute Hinamatsuri (Girl's Festival) colored Japanese sweets. A collection of the best recipes from the Cookpad Japan community, translated into English! Tried this Tonight and it’s fabulous. And buy a red bean to try your homemade red bean paste. I can easily get mochiko, but I would like to try to make it with the other ingredient if possible.
