Mochi - Revisited


I made Mochi again but this time used a different recipe.  Verdict ..... good, tasted more or less like my previous  Mochi post  but a word of caution though .... the steamed dough was sooo  hot, I had a hard time juggling it trying to shape the balls of dough.  As you can see they're rather odd shaped but I really can't help it!



Mix the glutinous rice flour  with sugar, add in water, stir with a whisk.
Steam the mixture.
Transfer the cooked mixture onto a plate dusted with cornflour.


The centre one has only a cube of mango inside, hence it's slightly smaller compared with the other two.  These had a filling of mango wrapped  with red bean paste.





The texture of this Mochi is softer but not as chewy as the first recipe. Made 5 mochi from this recipe.  I prefer the filling of red bean paste with a cube of mango, sweet and with a slight tinge of sourish water lily mango .............. great for dessert.

Ingredients 
  • 100 gm glutinous rice flour
  • 125 gm red bean paste  (store bought)
  • 100 to 110 ml water
  • 2  Tbsp sugar
  • Mango cut into cubes
  • Cornstarch for dusting
Method
  1. Wrap up a cube of mango with 25 gm of red bean paste, cover and keep refrigerated.
  2. Sift the glutinous rice flour into a mixing bowl, add in the sugar, mix well .
  3. Add in water sparingly, using a whisk to mix till the mixture is free from lumps.
  4. Steam under rapidly boiling water for 15 mins.
  5. Scoop up the cooked dough onto a tray dusted with cornflour.
  6. Add in some cornflour and divide it into 5 pieces (the dough is super hot).
  7. Flatten a piece of dough, put in a ball of red bean paste.
  8. Shape into a ball and serve immediately.

  12. Wow how creative with a piece of mango in mochi! I can't remember the last time I had mochi, must have been ages ago ;) Yours look so tempting!

  13. cheah, i still remember your last mochi and asked you how does mochi taste like cos i havent tasted them before. Not too long ago, i have bought my first pack of mochi from tesco and i quite like it and i think it even taste better when it's still warm. I must try to make my mochi one day. I think the idea of putting fruits in there is great!

    I like mochi as I like stuff made with glutinous rice flour. Instead of mango you can put in a strawberry.

    Lena
    Yes they do taste better when still warm. Somehow they go well with red bean paste + fruit. I want to make my own red bean paste, but don't know when .....

  15. This is such a coincidence! I just posted a mochi filling recipe yesterday. :) Except, instead of steaming, I just microwave. It's not as healthy if you microwave, but it's easier. Your mochi looks really yummy. I want to try these with ice cream one day (wrapping ice cream inside) and strawberries with red bean paste or chocolate is another flavor I want to try.

    So nice of you to drop by. Strawberry with red bean paste is nice too, have tasted before. But wrapping it with ice-cream looks challenging, think it'll melt very fast as the mochi is hot! Hope to see you more often!

  17. LOVE mochi. Love it love it :D. Although yours are really interesting! I've never seen or heard of any with mango or any other fruit pieces in it lol. Sounds delicious though, I think it's a great idea! Love it with red bean paste. Yummm! I'm not one who minds about the shape. If I made them they'd be little blobs of different sizes and un-round. As long as they taste good :D

Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) ~ CNY 2020 核桃酥

These Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) are without hup toh/walnuts.  I do remember from young that the traditional Hup Toh Soh that I ate those days were quite big, around 4 inches in diameter or because I was small and to me everything looked big!  They were made with lard and were very crunchy but there wasn't any trace of hup toh in them and nobody asked why.   Although these biscuits are without walnuts, they are still crunchy and yummy.  If you are allergic to nuts, this is a recipe for you.  Give this a try for the coming Chinese New Year.
However, if you would like to have a recipe of  Hup Toh Soh with walnuts, do hop in 'here'.
