Servings 20 pieces


  • bowl

  • spatula


  • 0.5 cups water

Matcha Mochi Recipe


  • Add all listed ingredients for the Mochi Dough into a bowl
  • Mix well with a baking whisk until there are no lumps
  • Steam the mixture in the bowl for 15-20min or microwave for a total of 2-3min (Cooking time varies based on power of stove/ microwave; it’s recommended to check by putting a fork into the middle of the dough at 15min mark in steamer or 2min in microwave; If dough is too moist, add 1 min at a time if steaming or 15 sec at a time if microwave)
  • While you are waiting for it to heat up, you can begin making the mochi dip (see Mochi Dip recipe)
  • Once the dough is cooked, use a spatula to scrape and fold the edge of the cooked batter into the middle
  • Put a layer of food wrap on to the surface of the batter; directly touching it so there's no air
  • Place it inside the fridge to cool it down
  • Before placing the cooled mochi dough on top of the cutting board, wrap the cutting board with food wrap and use a generous amount of corn starch on your hands and cutting board to prevent the dough from sticking
  • Roll the mochi into a log shape and cut it into bite size pieces
  • Shape the mochi pieces into balls, drizzle with chilled mochi dip, and enjoy!



Useful Tips
  • Overcooked dough becomes dry and loses chewiness, so do check the middle of the dough after 15min in the steamer or 2min in the microwave
  • For Glutinous Rice Flour, we recommend this brand: ERAWAN
