Remember the Konashi, Japanese sweets, I posted about a week ago?
My friend brought almost all the main ingredients for the lesson, and she kindly left things for me that we did not use.
White bean paste,
Chestnut paste, and
I made a half of the white bean paste pink by adding beet juice, and the other half yellow by adding turmeric.
Also, I added Matcha powder to the potato paste and turned it into green.
There was not a lot of paste.
So, I decided to make mini “Ohagi”.
Ohagi is another type of traditional Japanese sweets.
It’s sticky sweet rice covered with sweet bean paste.
Here is Azuki Sesame.
This was a fun one.
I just put together a little bit of every paste that was left.
I’m super happy with how they turned out.
Aren’t these pretty?
