I’ve been wanting to make mochi a long long time but never get to do it. Finally, few weeks ago, I did it. It’s so easy!
2 cups of glutinous flour
2 cups of water
2 tablespoons of sugar
Sesame seeds/dessicated coconut/anything that can avoid the mochi sticking to each other (no specific measurement, for coating)
1. Mix glutinous flour and water well.
2. Place it in microwavable container covering the top of the container.
3. Microwave on HIGH (900 Watt) for 4 minutes.
4. Leave it cool for a bit.
5. Roll into ball and coat it with sesame. Do it as fast as you can. The longer it takes the harder it is to shape it into a ball.
Tips: Use plastic knife or spoon cut or scoop the mochi to avoid sticking.
Green tea mochi: Mix one teaspoon of green tea powder to make green tea mochi.
Red bean paste mochi: Fill the mochi with red bean paste.
Just be creative! Experiment!
