I hadn’t eaten mochi for so many years. I believe for all those past 20 something years, this was my second time. The first time was in a Chinese restaurant and they gave us mochi as free dessert, but it wasn’t anything near good at all, I didn’t like it. As a little kid back in China, something made of sweet sticky rice was never my kind of food. I don’t know why I wanted to make this so bad this time, and it turned to to be so good and I ate almost all of them. Surprising!!! This is not Japanese style mochi, it is Fujianese mochi.
Regular rice flour 1/3 cup
Glutinous rice flour 1 cup
Peanut meal 1/2 cup
Water 1/2 cup
Mix peanut and sugar together.
Mix 2 flours together, add water and mix until dough formed.
Roll the dough into thin long strip and cut it evenly to 16 to 20 pieces.
Roll each piece of dough round then cook them in boiling water for about 7-8 minutes until they all float to the top of the water.
Use a strainer to get all the balls out of water then drop them to the peanut sugar mix.
Roll the balls and make sure each piece wrap with enough peanut meal.
You can add or subtract the sugar according to your own preferences. You can even adjust the proportion of rice flours too, If you like the mochi softer, use more glutinous rice. If you like other flavors, you can use sesame meal, almond meal instead.
我很多年没吃糯米糍了。我相信在过去的20年里, 这是我的第二次吃。第一次是在中国餐馆, 他们给了我们糯米糍作为免费甜点, 但一点也不好吃。小时候在中国用糯米做的东西从来就不是我的菜。我不知道为什么这次我这么想做，而且好吃到我几乎一口气吃完了。令人 惊讶！！！这不是日式糯米糍, 这是福州人的做法。
把每块粉团搓圆, 然后在沸水中煮7-8 分钟, 直到它们都浮到水上。
你可以根据自己的喜好添加或减去糖的量。你甚至可以调整米粉的比例, 如果你喜欢更软一点可以用多一点的糯米粉。如果你喜欢其他口味, 你可以用芝麻粉, 杏仁粉代替花生粉。
