Sweet Bean Mochi with Step by Step Pictures. Mochi with Sweet Bean Filling.
This dessert is very new to me until our thailand trip. I tasted it during our trip and it was so delicious. I loved it a lot. When i came back i searched in amazon and bought a packet of glutinous rice flour.
As soon as it arrived, i made mochi. Traditionally it has red bean filling but i used green gram and it was pretty good. I have plans to make few more mochi recipes too.
Mochi is nothing but a dessert from japan / china. It has a chewy and strechy outer cover and a sweet bean filling.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
