Mochi or Sweet Rice Cake

Mochi or Sweet Rice Cake

This is Japanese and Korean sweet and it is very easy to make. You need to buy one box of Mochiko Sweet Rice Flour (Blue Star Brand from Asian store) and one can of Sweet Red Bean Paste (sometime I made my own red bean paste but it is easy to buy it)

1 cup of Mochiko rice flour (this only give about 8 Mochi)
3/4 cup of water
1 T of sugar (if you like it sweet add more sugar)
1/4 t of salt
1 drop of any food coloring you like

Red Bean filling

Take a 1 T of red bean paste and roll it to a small ball set aside do as many as you like.

Mix and combine all the ingredients in a bowl to paste, cover and microwave for 3 minutes
Take it out mix it again to make sure all part of four is cooked through
Now put in back in the microwave for 1 minute, when it is done knead it with a wooden spoon until you
See the elastic kind of dough

Flour working surface with potato flour (sometime I use regular flour) enough to handle the sticky dough knead and divide the dough into 8 equal parts, then flat the dough in the palm of your hand place the red bean filling in the center and roll it to a round ball shape dust it with potato flour place it in a baking paper cup.

You can also dust it with shredded coconut flake on the outside it tastes good.

This Mochi Sweet Rice Cake is also good for gift by putting it in a nice cake box.
