Cook the mochi

  • Steam: place the mochi in a steamer, cover and bring the water to boil on high heat. Lower the temperature to medium heat and let steam for 45 minutes.
  • Bake: Alternatively, you can bake the bars. Preheat the oven to 350F. Cover the mochi with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.
  • Let the mochi cool completely– either overnight or for at least 2 hours before attempting to remove it from the container and cutting. Sprinkle with more sesame seeds or black sesame powder when handling to prevent sticking.
