The Process

Mix together water (or milk), sugar, and glutinous rice flour in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 1 minute. Remove the bowl from the microwave. The edges should have started setting but the center is still raw. Mix the mixture, cover and microwave at 30s intervals, mixing after each interval, until a thick and semi-transparent mixture forms. Let cool ~2-5 minutes so it becomes cool enough to handle.

Using your hands, flatten the mochi, sprinkling more sesame seeds when needed, and cut into squares. Toss them in sesame seeds to coat the exposed sides an enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 100 g glutinous rice flour
  • 120 g water or milk
  • 80 g honey
  • sesame seeds

Instructions

  • Combine together glutinous rice flour, water and honey into a microwave safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 1 minute.
  • Remove from the microwave and mix the mixture together. The top and edges should be partially cooked but the center and bottom will most likely be raw. Cover and microwave at 30s intervals, mixing after each interval, until a thick and semi-transparent mixture forms. The total microwave time for me is about 2.5 minutes (1 minute then three 30s intervals).
  • After the last interval, mix the mixture, stretching and folding it over itself. This will help the steam to vent as well as even out the mixture. Let it cool uncovered until it is cool enough to handle ~2-5 minutes.
  • Pour sesame seeds onto a plate, fully covering it. Transfer the mochi onto the plate and sprinkle more sesame seeds on top to prevent sticking. Using your hands, flatten the mochi, sprinkling more sesame seeds when needed, and cut into squares. Toss them in sesame seeds to coat the exposed sides an enjoy!
