shiratamako kurumi1. Add the shiratamako and water to a bowl and mix until you get a smooth consistency. Add the walnuts (roughly chopped) and mix until they are evenly incorporated. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and form each portion into a ball, or “dango.”

2. Place all of the dango in boiling water. When they rise to the surface, remove them to cold water. Once the dango have cooled, remove them from the water and allow the excess water to drain off.
