The Japanese mochi is a rice dessert made from glutinous rice that is rolled in layers and then deep-fried. There are several types of this sweet dish and they can be made with or without rice.

Prepare The Ingredients And Cooking Utensils

Second, you need to prepare the ingredients for the Japanese mochi recipe. A traditional recipe will usually call for egg yolks, but you can also use other meats such as shrimp or chicken. A good idea is to use the gourmet ingredients available in your local Asian market. This will also give your mochi a more exotic flavor.

Prepare the cooking utensils that are suitable for this kind of dish. The common tools include a frying strainer, a heavy saucepan, and even a bamboo steamer. Make sure that your pan is well coated with oil. Also, make sure that it is deep-fried so that the rice does not stick to the sides. If possible, heat the pan on the lower rack so that the bottom does not get burned.

Prepare the ingredients. Combine one egg with one teaspoon of sugar in a bowl. You can also use whole eggs if you prefer. Add in the water and mix all of the ingredients thoroughly. Then, spoon the batter into your frying pan and cook it until the egg begins to set.

The Process

You should watch for the beginning of the cooking process so that you can watch carefully and make sure that the egg does not boil over. After the egg has set, you can proceed to stir it. This will also help to prevent the overcooked or dry mochi from overcooking.

You should start off by adding the salt to the rice. It is important to do this because salt makes the rice more delicious. Also, salt helps to keep the rice from sticking to the bottom of the wok.

Add the vegetables to the wok. When it is nearly done, add the meat and saute it until the meat is almost done. Add the seasonings and mix them well. Then, turn the heat down to medium low and cover the pot tightly. Wait for the fish to be cooked and add it to the pot once it is almost done.

The last step is to enjoy your Japanese mochi recipe. To enjoy this dish, it is best served hot from the stove. Because of this, it is important that you make sure that your wok is very hot before you add the ingredients. If not, the taste might be a bit off.

Serving Japanese Mochi

You can serve your Japanese mochi recipe hot from the stove or give it a few minutes to cook in the oven. Just remember that while the rice is cooking, you also need to pay very close attention to the other ingredients in the stir fry. This is where most of the fun takes place. Mix the ingredients together very gently. Make sure that they are well combined before adding them to the wok.

You can also season your fish with soy sauce, grated ginger, and hot sauce if you wish. These will give the fish a wonderful flavor. You can also alternate between spicy and mild fish for the taste that you desire. For a nice change, you can also substitute pork and chicken for the fish in your stir fry.

In addition to rice, another great option is noodles. The most common choice is a Chinese-style brown rice. However, you may also want to try something a little different such as spaghetti noodles. For a delicious meal, I recommend trying noodles and rice.
