Simple Mochi

Simple Mochi created by Jonathan Melendez

Simple recipe. You only need a microwave. Very versatile with dough and fillings. Not too sweet either. Here's a small batch which can be multiplied, but if you make more, experiment with the microwave times.

Ready In:
4mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 cup mochiko sweet rice flour (glutinous rice flour)
  • 1 cup water
  • 14 cup sugar
  • katakuriko, for dusting (potato starch)

directions

  • Mix mochiko and sugar in a bowl.
  • Add water and mix thoroughly. (will be watery).
  • Put in a microwaveable dish. Cover with plastic wrap.
  • Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Take off plastic wrap. Cool for a few minutes, if you want. Cut. Serve.
  • Opt. Dust with katakuriko or kinako to prevent mochi from sticking everywhere. If you don't have these, you can just put the mochi on cellophane.
  • Variations for Filling: You can add red bean paste, ice cream, chocolate, etc. in the middle if you want BEFORE you dust. add a teaspoon of filling and pinch edges closed.
  • Variations for Dough: Add a few drops of food coloring into batter for color variation. A few drops of flavoring (strawberry, grape, orange, blueberry, etc.) may also be added. >> For chocolate flavor, stir about 1/4 cup melted chocolate chips into mochi batter before cooking.

    Filled the mochi with red bean paste and it was delicious!

    I've never made mochi before and it was so simple! Colored it green by just whisking a few drops of green food coloring into the water before adding it to the dry ingredients.
