Number of servings: 20 worms
50g Shiratamako (lumpy, glutinous rice flour)
1/2 tsp. Matcha green tea powder
Kinako (soybean flour) or finely chopped nuts are okay
Kuromitsu (brown sugar syrup) or honey is okay
1. Put Shiratamako, Matcha and water in a bowl and knead the dough with your hand until smooth. Adjust the texture by adding more Shiratamako or water until the dough turns as soft as your earlobe.
2. Form the dough into worm-like small strips.
3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Gently drop Shiratama worms in the boiling water. After a few minutes, Shiratama worms will float to the surface. Boil for another 1-2 minutes. Then remove from the boiling water and transfer into cold water (to cool and remove the slimy texture). After a minute, drain well.
4. Put Kinako and Kuromitsu on a plate or in a flat container, then place the worms on top.
Good appetite and Happy Halloween!!!!!
