At the latest event, our intrepid crew took on the challenge of creating highly unusual mochi. We created a couple of pounds of raw mochi mix (via this recipe recommended by Kate) and soon got our fingers extremely sticky as we learned just how hard it is to work with.
My memories of exactly what was created that night are a bit hazy, but I recall the following flavors/fillings working quite well:
- Whole blueberries
- Tamarind sauce
- Mango ginger chutney
- Five Spice powder + hot pepper
- Unsweetened chocolate (mochi rice mix had some sugar already)
Chocolate + Liquid smoke didn't work as well. :-)
