Traditional Japanese desserts are low or no fat, and healthy.
Making rice desserts like mochi and dango are also very easy and fun, like playing with Play-Doh. You can make small batches to avoid guilty dessert binge.
I may also reveal secrets of tofu pudding…

Mild Japanese curry is the very first dish we learn to make as a child Japan. It's not too late, you can still get your first lesson on Japanese curry making.
