Mochi is a type of rice cake that is made by vigorously beating cooked glutinous rice to develop its characteristically springy texture. Mochi is a versatile food that can be used for desserts but kiri mochi is most often grilled and added to soups and broths. Sato kiri mochi are packaged individually to retain moisture and pre-cut on the surface to let the mochi expand beautifully when grilled or broiled. Unscored mochi swells in unpredictable ways when grilled. Mochi has a plain flavor and wonderful texture that pairs equally well with both sweet and savory.
Uses: Mochi is traditionally grilled charcoal but they can also be boiled or cooked in the oven. Broil mochi in a toaster oven until the surface turns lightly brown (3-4 minutes). Turn off the heat and leave the Mochi inside for 2 minutes to continue cooking.
Each package contains 8 individually wrapped mochi.
