Exclusive from The Daily Meal
- 1 1/2 cups sweet rice flour
- 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon peanut or vegetable oil
- 1 cup warm water
- 1/2 cup unsalted peanuts, roasted and ground into powder
- 3 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste
In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, combine the rice flour, cornstarch, ½ teaspoon oil, and water. Stir until smooth.
Microwave on intervals of 20-30 seconds, mixing in between cooking times, until the mochi is slightly transparent throughout (about 5-6 times). It does not have to be even.
In a plastic sandwich bag, rub the remaining oil inside and place the mochi within. Knead with hands until the mochi absorbs most of the oil. Let cool.
Mix together ground peanuts and sugar. Place mochi into the mixture, and using 2 chopsticks, cut the mochi into bite-sized pieces, coating with peanuts. Serve.
