Other InformationWhat is mochi?
The hearty flavour and unique, chewy texture of mochi has made it a natural favourite in Japan. Mitoku Brown Rice Mochi is prepared in the traditional way: steamed whole grain glutinous rice (sweet brown rice) is pounded to a sticky dough, then formed into blocks and dried. When cooked, these "cakes" soften and puff up, becoming delectably moist and chewy.

Fry the mochi in sesame oil till puffed a little and golden. Grate some fresh daikon, or slice some pickled daikon on top, and roll into a bit of roasted nori. It makes a lovely filling snack, and very balanced too.Reviewer's Name:

This mochi has a really good taste and the texture is just right. The deep dark green colour is fantastic too!

I love the colour of this and the feeling that I know I'm eating something really healthy yet it's a snack/starter food. I personally wrapped mine in grape leaves and dipped in sweet ginger sauce and just wow - magnificent. Reviewer's Name:
