mochi



I borrowed this recipe from Daphne who always has the most inspiring foods showcased on her blog. I will post my pictures tomorrow when I actually make it (I need to get some glutinous rice flour) It sounds so easy and I like mochi so much I hope I do a good job.


Mango Mochi

1 cup glutinous rice flour
180ml mango juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 mango in tiny cubes
shredded coconut for dusting/coating

Method:

1. In a glass bowl, combine flour, juice and sugar. Stir to mix well.

2. Cover with a plastic wrap and microwave for 2 minutes. Remove and stir well. Return to microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir-well and check for doneness. If not, put it back for another 30 seconds, be careful not to burn it. In most cases, the first 30 seconds after the initial 2 mins should be enough.

3. Flour the working surface with coconut and use a spoon to drop a ball of mochi on top and quickly cover it with coconut. Wrap the mango inside and cover with more coconut. Shape into balls. Moisten if necessary to close the edges. Pop in your mouth and enjoy!

Hey db... So how do you know when a mango is good? I've bought two of them now and neither one of them tasted good or looked good inside--like they were both overripe... Is there a color or a texture I should try? I just hate throwing away food... :(
