• 1 cup mochiko sweet rice flour (glutinous rice flour)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • katakuriko, for dusting (potato starch)

Method:

  1. Mix mochiko and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Add water and mix thoroughly. (will be watery).
  3. Put in a microwaveable dish. Cover with plastic wrap.
  4. Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Take off plastic wrap. Cool for a few minutes, if you want. Cut. Serve.
  5. Dust with katakuriko or kinako to prevent mochi from sticking everywhere.
  6. Variations for Filling: You can add red bean paste, ice cream, chocolate, etc. in the middle if you want BEFORE you dust. Add a teaspoon of filling and pinch edges closed.
  7. Variations for Dough: Add a few drops of natural  food coloring into batter for color variation. A few drops of flavoring (strawberry, grape, orange, blueberry, etc.) may also be added. >> For chocolate flavor, stir about 1/4 cup melted chocolate chips into mochi batter before cooking.
