To make the rice cake "mochi" for 4 people, you need:

Ingredients[edit]

  • 2 cups of brown rice
  • 1 to 1.25 cups of water per cup of rice
  • a pinch of sea salt per cup rice

Procedure[edit]

  1. Wash the rice and soak for a couple of hours or throughout the night.
  2. Cook the rice in a pressure pan.
  3. Grind the cooked rice in a mortar until the grain is completely fluid and sticky. This will take at least 30 minutes of grinding when done by hand.
  4. Shape the mash into 2-centimeter squares. Place the rice squares on an oiled plate and allow to dry for 1 to 2 days.
  5. Keep covered in a cold dry room or in the refrigerator.
  6. After this, roast the squares for 5 minutes in a pan.
