Delicious recipe, but incredibly dense. Maybe I did something wrong, but I think I followed the recipe exactly! The texture was just really off -- didn't even need to sprinkle with katakuriko because mochi was so dense.

This is a good recipe... I also tried making a Green Tea version of the recipe which turned out really good. I posted it here if interested: Green Tea Mochi

If you like mochi, you really should try this recipe. I was going to post this recipe in response to a request, but found that seb had beat me to it. This is very easy & full of flavor.
