Mochi Black Rice Ball

Have you tried Mochi? It’s also called Japanese rice cake. It is made from short-grain japonica glutinous rice. The Mochi is soft and slightly sweet. It is used for making sweet or savoury dishes. Very often, we have it with stuffed red bean paste as a dessert. Traditionally, it involves a lot of hard work to make Mochi. Two people have to pound the glutinous rice with wooden mallets. However, these days, we can make it from sticky rice flour, cornstarch and sugar at home in a microwave. You do need to knead the dough a bit. From time to time, I like to make these rice balls as my breakfast or a quick lunch. The filling I used is pork floss this time. Just remember Mochi is very sticky to work with.  I wear gloves to prepare it. It’s so much easy in that way. I hope you like it.
