Microwave Mochi

junio 30, 2022

An easier and faster way to make japanese mochi, even though they are simple to make, they get the job done and are really good!

Preparation Time: 5 mins

Cook: 10 mins

Servings: 24


  • 1 ½ cups mochiko (glutinous rice flour)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 2 drops distilled white vinegar
  • ½ cup potato starch
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Step 1.
In a medium bowl, mix together the mochiko, 1 cup of sugar, and water until well blended. Mix in the 2 drops of vinegar to soften. Pour into a microwave-safe dish, and loosely cover with plastic. Microwave for 8 to 10 minutes on HIGH. Remove, and let cool until cool enough to handle.

Step 2.
In a small bowl, combine the potato starch, 1/4 cup sugar, and salt. Turn the mochi out onto the plastic, and cut into pieces using a plastic or wooden knife. Metal knives tend to stick too much. Roll the pieces in the potato starch mixture.
