Toasted Mochi in Soybean Flour (Kinako Mochi)

Kinako mochi is made by broiling mochi until they puff up, then dipping them in hot water and rolling them in a soybean flour mixture, for an addictive snack.

What to buy: Kinako is a soybean flour that can be found at Asian markets.

This recipe was featured as part of our New Year’s, Japanese Style menu, as well as Drinks Around the World feature.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the broiler to high and arrange a rack in the upper third of the oven. Combine kinako, sugar, and salt in a bowl and mix thoroughly; set aside.
  2. 2Place mochi on a baking sheet and broil, turning frequently, until inflated, crisp, and brown on all sides, about 5 minutes.
  3. 3Dip mochi in hot water, roll in kinako mixture, and serve immediately.
