Just like the name, this snack too is quite interesting in its taste. It wouldn't be wrong to call it a Japanese version of a pancake.

the recipe looks easy, however 4 noobs, it doesn't specify time to steam dough balls & how. Mirin and soy are both liquid, I assume I have to brush the cut dough with a brush? Are they ready to eat when golden on the grill or when? still good recipe
