I think we’re going! 4 years ago
My friend Jessica and I are going to make mochi in 2 days. I’m really excited about it. She made it recently at the Waldorf school she used to work at. We are going to go to Uwajimaya and buy the necessary ingredients and then make it at my house. Yay! 5 years ago
It’s not hard to do, but it seems like it would take a couple of tries to do it right. I made mochi filled with green tea ice cream. The ice cream turned out great- but the the mochi was a sticky, gooey, mess. For some reason I couldn’t get the dough consistency right. It was too thick, and not as chewy- I think I added too much flour. I think I also dusted too much flour on top. They say to use food coloring to dye the mochi on the recipe I used, but I used the green tea powder (Matcha) I used to make the ice cream. A quick trip to Trader Joe’s is probably easier, but it was worth trying it out. 7 years ago
I did it on the morning of New Year’s Day, when I lived at the Sansui building in Kobe.
I love mochi—that doughy texture is right up my alley. But for the life of me, I don’t know why it’s so expensive. It’s just blobby rice, with some flavors or fillings. 7 years ago
This is not as easy as we thought it would be. While tasty, these chocolate turds left a little to be desired aesthetically. We’ll have to try this again. 7 years ago
