Microwave Mochi

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
This recipe worked out great for me on the first try, but I did modify/remove a few things from my own version. Instead of water, I used 1 and 1/2 cups of rich coconut milk. I'd seen other recipes online using coconut milk and it just sounded yummier to me! Per another user's suggestion, I subbed veggie oil for the distilled white vinegar. I completely omitted the potato starch, extra 1/4 cup of sugar, and salt and instead used confectioners sugar (powdered sugar). One caution - make sure the mochi is cooled at least MOST of the way before putting any powdered sugar on it, as it will melt and become a sticky mess if it is still hot! Lastly, I added a table spoon of green tea powder to the mix to give it some flavor. I mixed the sugar, rice flour, and coconut milk first, then added the green tea powder. In afterthought, it might have been better to mix the 3 dry ingredients together, first, then add the milk and oil. I microwaved it in 2 minute increments, per another user's suggestion, and stirred. I ended up microwaving it for just 7 minutes total and put it on a piece of tin foil to cool before slicing it and molding it into balls. After letting it cool, I sprinkled it with a bit of powdered sugar to keep it from sticking to everything. It came out delicious and I'll definitely be making it again! (:
