[What is Mizubiki?]
This is the way of production; soak sticky rice in water overnight, and grind it together with water by a stone mill. After it gets powder, put it in water, then it will get sediment. Squeeze the sediment and dry it. Finally, traditional way of Shiratamako (sweet rice powder) is ready.
By putting in water, we can reduce the damage from frictional heat from stone mill. and also surplus of hydrosoluble protein melts out in water. Thus we can get Shiratamako with high purity of the starch.
[how to make Shiratama dumpling]
Add about 110cc water little by little against one pack of this Shiratama flour (120g). Make knead the dough well by hands until it gets ear lobes softness. When enough water in a pan get boiled, cook Shirama balls which are shaped round as big as you want. After those balls are coming up on the surface, keep boiling about 1-2 minuits as it is. Then, scoop them up and put them into cold water. When the temperature get low, drain water well. Serve them together with fruits punch or ice cream. Or also good to eat with Mitarashi-dango (skewed rice dumplings in a sweet soy glaze).
