Recipe By: KitchenCIB (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/94)
Serves 6 Prep: 30 min Cook: 20 min

Ingredients

Dumpling:
Refined rice flour (shiratamako) 60g
Top grade rice flour (jyoshinko) 240g
Warm water 260-280ml
Sauce:
Soy sauce 3 tbsp
Golden syrup 4 tbsp
Potato starch or cornflour 1 tbsp
Water 60ml

Method

1
Put both rice flours into a bowl and mix well. Add the warm water a bit at a time, stirring each time.
2
Divide into 3 or 4 pieces and steam for 20-25 minutes.
3
Smash into pieces with a rolling pin.
4
Allow to cool. Moisten your hands, then tear off a small piece and make into small balls smaller than a ping pong ball.
5
Prepare the sauce: put all the ingredients into a saucepan on a medium heat until sticky.

Tips & Note

I used British Golden Syrup this time, it has a stickiness that's ideal for making such sauces.
