(25 servings)

1 1/2 cups mochiko (glutinous rice flour)

1 cup white sugar

1 1/2 cups water

2 drops distilled white vinegar

1/2 cup potato starch

1/4 cup white sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

Optional: 3/4 cup powdered sugar(mochi pieces can be rolled in powdered sugar instead of potato starch)


  1. In a medium bowl, mix the mochiko, 1 cup of sugar, and water until well blended. Mix in 2 drops of vinegar to soften the mixture.
  2. Pour into a microwave-safe dish, and loosely cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 8 to 10 minutes on high. Remove, and let it cool down before handling.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the potato starch, 1/4 cup sugar and salt. Turn the mochi out onto the plastic wrap, and cut into pieces using a plastic or wooden knife. Metal knives tend to stick too much.
  4. Roll the mochi pieces in the potato flour mixture or in powdered sugar.
