This recipe is pretty darned good and very easy. For traditional mochi to serve with azuki beans, I would decrease the sugar, even by half. I added a few drops of canola oil and a few drops of vanilla. I microwaved 3 minutes on low, 3 minutes on medium, and 3 minutes on high. Didn't have potato starch, so I rolled it in powdered sugar. The original recipe tastes sweet, more like manju. All in all, easy and delicious! Fresh is definitely better than buying store bought or making mochi (pounding) the traditional way. My Japanese grandmother is probably turning over in her grave...
