Recipe ingredients and directions:
Japanese sweet rice is sometimes called Mochi. It is also the name of rice
cakes made with this sweet, sticky rice. Ohagi is a dumpling made with
Domyoji mochi and bean paste. Most Mochis are made with Mochiko which is
rice flour made from Mochi rice.
Steam glutinous rice until done. (Done usually menas soft, sticky,
but not too soft.) Mash and pound the steamed rice fully so that
no grain should be left at all. When pounding is completed, pluck
it to bits and ball up.
There are several ways to season: sugar with soy sauce, soybean
flour(powdered), bean jam(covered or inside) and mugwort(mixed).
However, when it is still fresh, no flavoring is needed and it is
very enjoyable on its own.
