yummy, very sticky, but manageable. only makes about 6-7 smallish mochi, so if you've bothered to make a kilo/2lbs of red bean paste, you're going to need to multipy the recipe considerably!! also, i only needed to stir the dough for about 30 seconds til the lumps were gone. i only microwaved for 2.5 minutes and kneaded the dough for 2 minutes (wrap the ziploc bag containing the hot dough in a towel to be able to start kneading straight away). greased scissors or knife is a MUST. also, i filled mine with homemade red bean paste (pretty good); others with flaked, roasted almonds and brown sugar, then rolled the balls in toasted sesame seeds... REALLY good! nice recipe, but quite a lot of work. the great thing is it's cheap, fun, and you probably already have the ingredients at home :)
easier than other recipes, but too sticky to fill and roll into balls...the only thing I could make out of it was to grease the scissors and just cut the dough into pieces.
this is so easy to make! taste exactly like the muah chee sold in pasar malan in Singapore. Thanks for the recipe!
So quick and easy to make! I put a little guava jelly in it and it was wonderful. My cat even liked it!
I liked the subtle flavor. I used honey instead of sugar and I ended up needing more flour. I don't recomend multiplying it too many more times at once. I multiplied it seven times and working with that much more increadibly sticky dough nearly made me bonkers. I took the recomendation to cut a hole in the zip bag and squeeze the dough out then cut with a kitchen scissors. That worked decently well. I also wraped some sweet bean paste in some of the mochi balls and I like that better than the plain. Thanks!
These were really quick and easy to make and turned out great.
I love that I can now make this at home, so quick, cheap and easy! Love the micro and bag methods! The only problem I had was that 5 T of water wasn't enough, I think I added 3 or 4 more to the mix, other than that it was perfect! My toddler is in love and wanted more more more!
What a neat recipe! This was simpler to make than I expected, especially the part where you knead the dough in a plastic bag. I sprinkled a little sugar on top of the peanut-covered mochi immediately before serving -- I didn't have a problem with the mochi being too sticky. Thanks for sharing this!
This was okay. It was extremely sticky while making. If you want a traditional taste of Japan, go for it. My modern tastebuds definately did not crave more.
Perfect perfect perfect. Thanks.
