Background

Mochi is a much-loved staple ingredient and rice dessert made both skillfully and sweetly to bring out some of Japan's most decadent flavours. By soaking glutinous rice overnight and masterfully hammering it into a thick paste, using a special long wooden hammer and pestle, each square or cube is ceremoniously prepared usually around new year and festivals to draw crowds and create a delicious spectacle. Known for its chewy and squishy texture mochi makes the perfect bitesize treat to enjoy your favourite dessert fillings and is surprisingly versatile in Japanese cooking, adding a stringy cheese-like texture to dishes like okonomiyaki and ozoni. Whatever your preference, check out our Mochi section at japancentre.com to find your favourite way of enjoying this sticky specialty.
