Mochi Tsuki - Japanese Rice Cake Making

Back in January we made and ate Mochi or Japanese Rice cake at our school. Was a fun event and perfect opportunity to show you guys how Mochi or rice cake is made.

With the 餅(mochi)=Rice Cake we made, we made these mochi balls with あんこ(anko)=Bean Paste inside and covered with 黄粉(kina-ko)=Soybean flour. This is a popular mochi snack in Japan called 蕨餅(warabi-mochi)=Bracken Mochi. Usually they're square shaped but round ones are easier to make ^^
