ITEM ID: #7019


Shiratama ko is a powder made of sweet mochi rice that has been rinsed, soaked, pounded into mochi and dried to make what can be thought of as a sort of 'instant mochi'. Mochi is an essential ingredient in almost all wagashi (traditional Japanese desserts), and also frequently enjoyed in soups, noodle dishes, hot pots, or boiled/grilled by itself. For a great range of frequently utilised Japanese cooking ingredients, take a look at japancentre.com's Cupboard Staples section.

How To Use

Some suggestions for using your shiratama rice flour:
• Mix 200g shiratama ko with 180ml water until soft, roll into balls and boil for approx 1-2 minutes before cooling for easy shiratama dango.
• Mix 200g sweet rice flour with 4 tbsp sugar and 240ml water before microwaving in a cling film covered container for 2-3 mins. Mix and heat again for 1-2 mins to make a soft dough for Japanese sweets.
• Follow our detailed Japan Centre Ichigo Daifuku recipe to make some juicy strawberry and red bean mochi treats.
