Mochi is a Japanese rice cake, that can be filled with fruits, ice cream, custard - really anything.
You can try this with other fruit. Such as strawberry, raspberry, or blueberry.
If you do choose a different flavor, make sure to change the puree flavor.
Did you know that you can also fill these with cookie dough? Tempting as that may be, it's Mango Week!!!
Use sweet and juicy mangoes. It really makes a difference.
Level: 👩🏽🍳👩🏽🍳|Time: 45 minutes|Serves: 10|
1 1/2 cups mango pureed
1 1/2 cups glutinous rice flour
2 tablespoons agave syrup
1/2 tablespoon water
1/2 cup Mango flesh, cut into 1" squares
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
STEPS: Combine the pureed mango, rice flour, agave syrup, and water; knead to together.
Roll 1" small circles and make a well in the center to each. Pop a mango in each one and repeat until finished.
Add 8 at a time to a large pan over medium-high heat - a rolling boil. Once the mochi floats up, turn to low and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Roll with desiccated coconut.
