Chinese Mochi dessert

I love eating these- they can be filled with red bean paste, or sweet crushed peanuts. They're individually sized, and cool to the touch. A tasty little treat. I made them last year, but they weren't as successful as I had hoped. Here's a newly acquired recipe.


- 1 bag (16 oz) sweet rice flour
- 2 cups sugar
- ~1 2/3 cups cold water
- your favorite filling, red bean, black bean, lotus, taro, or peanut paste.
- dash of potato powder/flour

  1. Mix rice flour and sugar together.
  2. Add in water slowly, until dough forms.
  3. Microwave on high, for 6 minutes in the microwave. Stir.
  4. Microwave another 6 minutes, then stir.
  5. Microwave another 2 minutes, then stir.
  6. Wrap filling.
  7. Coat with sesame seeds, or dust with potato powder. let cool.
  8. Eat!
