Don't you feel like having some chilled dessert when the weather turns hot? This time, we have tried to make "Warabimochi (Bracken-starch Dumplings)" - a kind of dessert with chewy texture that is often eaten in Japan from spring to summer. You just need to prepare a few of simple ingredients: Warabimochi flour, sugar, and water. It may be hard to find Warabimochi flour overseas but here in Japan, you can get it from supermarkets or baking supply stores. So, let us show you how to make it!

The ingredients are very simple and it is so easy to make. It takes more time than buying at a store, but that is why you would find it more delicious as it is homemade♪ It seems like many people enjoy cooking or baking at home nowadays in the pandemic. From now on, we will keep learning other recipes and share with you all! (Editorial Dept.: Gon & Boo)
