    Mochi (Japanese Rice Cake)

    Mochi is a Japanese traditional food for the time around the beginning of the year. It is translated as “rice cake” in English, but rice cake also means a type of snack with popped rice so it should be pretty tough to imagine the rice cake Japanese people eat at the beginning of the year just by the word. It is made from rice. The texture is very sticky like cooked mozzarella cheese. It doesn’t have so much taste since it is simply made from rice and water, but the main point of this food is its special texture. For the very sticky texture, people like from abroad who eat it in first time despise it, but it is pretty sad to hate the thing with just one try. In Japan it is eaten with lots of topping. There are soy powder and Azuki paste(Pic1) if it is sweets, for salty taste there is soy sauce(Pic3), cheese and it is also put inside a cup of soup. For the sweets, soy powder is called “Kinako” in Japanese. Usually it is sweeten by sugar and a bit of salt. Azuki paste is known as “Anko”. Both sweets choices are based on beans so they are pretty healthy for your body as well.

    Have you tried it earlier? [/img] icon_smile.gif
