We just uploaded a super kawaii recipe created exclusively by Dani of www.otakufood.com for Japan Lover Me!
Dango are a type of sweet Japanese dumpling made from rice flour. They are similar to mochi which are rice cakes, and sometimes may appear to be the same things. What’s the difference? Mochi are traditionally made from pounded sticky rice, while dango are always made from rice flour. However, these days mochi are also made from flour, so the line between the two can be a little vague. Also, dango means balled shaped or round object, so calling a round mochi cake dango isn’t incorrect. So basically some dango are mochi but not all mochi are dango!
