Snoopy Mochi

Snoopy mochi

One of the sweets that I like to eat from Japan is mochi. I love the sweetness and its texture, what more if it is in a cute character shape. Mochi can be filled with red bean, ice cream or even sakura flavoured paste. Red bean paste can be purchased in Daiso or your asian bakery supplies store. Recently, I was able to purchase online the sakura flavoured and have it sent to Singapore. I was excited to try it!!! So here is my mochi with sakura flavoured filling.

Ingredients

  • 115g glutinous rice flour
  • 30g sugar
  • 120g water
  • filling of choice
  • black colour and fine brush

Method

  • shape your filling into 10-11g balls.
  • mix the glutinous rice and sugar
  • add in the water
  • microwave the mixture until it become pasty dough like and translucent in colour. Check and stir every 30 seconds. My total time was about 2 minutes. Microwaves have different wattage, hence your mixture might need longer or shorter timing than mine.
  • let it cool
  • sprinkle your mat with cornstarch or potato starch. Roll the dough with a rolling pin and use a 5cm cookie cutter to cut into circles.
  • wrap your filling with the dough, pinch all corners together to seal, and roll it into round or oblong shape.
  • Use black colour with fine tip brush to draw your character onto the surface of your mochi. You may add clear coloured liquor (40%) to dilute your colour. Adding liquor will hasten up the drying rate of painted surface
  • Best keep in an airtight container and consumed within few hours

And now the final moment ! Tada!

ready to serve!

Enjoy! Hasta La Vista, til my next post!
