The manju is made with brown sugar dough and red bean paste filling, deep-fried in oil to make it crispy and give it a great flavor and aroma. The crispy texture of the outer part goes very well with the modest sweet bean paste. The surface is hard, while the inside is moist and soft, experiencing two different textures at the same time.
In addition to the regular red bean paste type, another product “Karinto Manju (sesame)" (120 yen per piece) is made with a brown sugar bun mixed with white sesame seeds and filled with a black sesame bean paste.
