What are “Hyourou-gan”s?

Hyourou-gans are ball shaped preserved food that has a part like a medicine. It is like “Calorie Mate” that we eat today. It is made differently in places, but is mainly made from carrot, white rice, buckwheat flour, beans, pickled plum, sesame and alcohol. People in places had arranged these and made their own Hyourou-gans.


This is the ingredients that we used when we made our own Hyourou-gans.

・carrot…………………30g (1/4 carrot)
・rice flour………………20g
・water…………………one tablespoonful
・honey…………………one tablespoonful

How to make

This is a recipe of Hyourou-gans that we arranged. It is little different from Hyourou-gans that were eaten by ninjas in history.

1. Measure all ingredients. Mash the carrots, and put it in to a bowl. Mix it with a spoon. 材料
2. Knead it with your hand for about five minutes after the doe became into one. 材料
3. Make balls of the doe, and roast it with an oven toaster. In this picture, we roasted it five minutes in 1200W. Some are flat because of making the heat go to the center. 材料
