How To Make Hanami Dango

Treat yourself to this chewy hanami dango, made with glutinous rice & silken soft tofu, for soft Japanese sweetened rice balls on a skewer.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 20 mins


  • 100 g silken soft tofu, (½ block)
  • ¾ cup glutinous rice flour
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • ¼ tsp strawberry powder, optional
  • ¼ tsp matcha powder, optional


  1. Weigh the rice flour, silken tofu, and sugar and then add into a large bowl. Mix well by hands. Using a kneading motion until a dough forms.

  2. Divide the dough into 3 equal parts.

  3. Sift in the strawberry powder into one portion of the dough and knead until it forms a uniform pink colour.
  4. Sift in the matcha powder into another portion of the dough and knead well until it turns green.
  5. Divide each ball of dough into 5 to 6 balls.

  6. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add in the dango balls. Leave the dango balls to cook. Remove the dango balls when they rise to the top of the water. Scoop them out using a strainer ladle and place into a bowl of ice cold water to stop them from cooking further.
  7. Add 1 green dango ball onto a skewer. Follow with 1 white and 1 pink dango ball. Repeat for all 5 to 6 skewers then enjoy!
