A friend brought me some take no tsuyu (たけの露) from Kyoto. It looks like this:
I'm having trouble understanding instructions on how to eat it.
It's served with some hot water, then crushed, then more water is added until it becomes sort of a soup?
Place one of the take no tsuyu in a bowl then you pour boiling water over. The rice cake outer layer will soften and come apart as you stir it with your chopsticks and the red bean soup powder inside will hydrate and create a flavorful broth.
