"Manju" Traditional Steamed Cake (Japan)

I love any kind of steamed cakes, especially humbows. Here's a tasty Japanese recipe.
I studied Japanese all through high school and college. I also study Karate. I speak pretty good Japanese, but I still haven't had the chance to visit Japan.
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsps baking soda
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup anko (sweet azuki beans)


Mix flour and sugar in a bowl. Put baking soda in the water. Add the water in the bowl. Knead the dough for 10-15 minutes. Divide the dough into 12 pieces. Make round shapes and flatten them. Put anko (sweet beans) filling on the center. Wrap the anko by stretching the dough and make manjyu. Steam the manjyu on high heat for 15 minutes.

I have a question, I doubt this is even possible and probably is a stupid question buuuutttttt: Can you get azuki beans outside of Japan? You can't can you? I seriously doubt this... >.> Damn Canada and it's none-japanesesy ways. >.<

Shai anyway.

this is a stupid question... but do they need to be refrigerated? im going to make some and i just want to know if it needs to be could or if it maters.

Here are a couple of answers to your questions.

First, yes, you can buy adzuki beans outside of Japan, usually at Asian food/grocery stores. I live in the US, and there's a little Japanese store called Kappa nearby where I live, and I buy them from there.

If you can't find adzuki beans, however, you can use black beans instead (you just won't get the nice red color.)

As for refrigeration, no, they don't have to be refrigerated as long as you use them within a few days. Red bean paste itself needs to be refrigerated, but it doesn't once it's inside the buns.

This site is awsome!!! Just like everyone else I have been looking for this recipe<3 My question is, is how do I steam the bun? The same way you do vegies? Vegies in a little water in a steamer and microwave it?

a745 said...

2 teaspoons baking soda is simply too much for this recipe. I tried as instructed, and it resulted in very bitter manjus. I had to actually throw them out >_>.

A question!
What kind of steamer do you use? Do you steam them in the oven? Or use a dedicated steamer?

Neha said...

This is a really simple yet great recipe. Am going too try it soon enough. By the way, where I live, azuki beans aren't available. What would you suggest can be substituted for it as the filling?

Thanks in advance. :)

Thank you so much Mimi! This recipe is great have been wanting to make these for ages and first batch just came out the steamer. Now if only I could cool down the azuki faster my tongue hurts :-)

Cost-free Proxy Servers are utilised for anonymous browsing. Most frequent usage of cost-free proxy server is to bypass the college/office or any other place's safety limits and access unrestricted sites. But [url= ]Private Proxies Squid [/url] servers must be used with caution. If utilized with no protection measures, it can outcome in big decline as when compared to benefit of browsing the internet anonymously. There are two ways by means of which you can cover your identity (your IP tackle) when browsing the net. Very first and the most inexpensive way is to use free proxy server. There are many windows and linux proxy web sites available on the web which lets you use their providers cost-free of cost. The other choice for hiding your identity is to use paid application. The IP hiding application, alterations your IP deal with repeatedly to permit you browse net anonymously.

There are number of important factors you require to keep in mind when employing totally free proxy servers.

one.) Look at out for your safety

Do not give out any delicate info this sort of as your login specifics or credit score card information when using diverse proxy servers because when you use cost-free proxy server, all the info you supply on any internet site is first sent to free proxy server and then to the site server. So all the data go through the totally free proxy server and most of the time it is unencrypted, exposing your sensitive information for prospective misuse.

Paid computer software are much far better in terms and conditions of stability. There programs are designed to conceal your IP and then discard all your details without having any human involvement.

2.) Stability and Availability

There are numerous free proxy server web sites but most of them are not steady and are not accessible each and every time you pay a visit to them. This dilemma is not extremely significant with paid computer software.

three.) Velocity of Searching

When you use any proxy server for hiding your IP, you can truly feel the gradual pace of browsing instantaneously. Although there are great websites offered for anonymous browsing but they are quite difficult to find. Also, speed is not regular it relies upon mainly on load on their servers. At instances you do get good searching pace but it's not steady. Again, compensated application for hiding IP are significantly much better at searching pace. As they charge for their solutions, they guarantee that the user encounter is much better and you do not get sluggish velocity although browsing the net through their application.

They are also excellent when you locate a high quality one particular that masks your region of origin. When looking for a On the internet Proxy make confident it has Java put in so you can view films. As you can occasionally have your region of origin cloaked but if java does not perform it is not much use.
