The Mochi Ratio


I’ve blogged previously about the Taiwanese obsession with chewy things, such as bubble tea. One of these chewy treats is mochi. Imported from Japan, mochi is glutinous rice flour that’s been pounded to a elastic doughy-ness and filled with something sweet, like peanut, black sesame, or mung bean. At our local market in Taipei, you can buy the glutinous rice dough separate from the filling, in order to make your mochi with the ratio to your liking. For instance, if you’re not a big fan of the chewy flour, then take a small amount of the glutinous dough and cover it with a lot of peanut and sugar powder. You can customize your mochi to your very own mochi ratio!
