How to Make Matcha Warabi Mochi with Microwave Oven

     Today, I made matcha warabi mochi (わらび餅), a traditional Japanese mochi dessert and coated with kinako, roasted soy bean flour. It was incredibly so good! It had delicious rich kinako taste and slightly bitter from matcha powder. Obviously, it was the best warabi mochi I've ever had! If you love matcha or green tea, I think you might like this warabi mochi as well. :)   

    The reason why I made matcha warabi mochi was that I found this kinako matcha powder, Torokeru Kinako Matcha (とろける きな粉 抹茶), at my local Japanese supermarket today. When I found this, I thought that I should make warabi mochi with it. :)

        In addition to kinako powder, it contains brown sugar and matcha powder from Nishio city (西尾市), Aichi prefecture (愛知県).

Ingredients (8 Pieces)

For Mochi
2 Tablespoons of Katakuriko, Potato Starch
25g (0.8 oz) of Sugar (I used honey this time.)
90 ml (3 fl oz) of Water

For Coating
Torokeru Kinako Matcha, Kinako Matcha Powder (or Kinako + Matcha Powder + Brown Sugar)




1. Mix katakuriko, sugar and water in a cup.


2. Microwave it for 15 seconds. Stir thoroughly. (By the way, my microwave oven is 1000w.)


3. Microwave it for 10 seconds. Stir thoroughly. Repeat this step until it is thick and translucent.



4. Scoop small pieces of mochi with a wet tablespoon. Soak the mochi in cold ice water. 



5. Then, move the mochi into the kinako matcha powder. Coat the mochi with it.




6. Serve and enjoy!
