A tasty Japanese snack with a sweet gummy green tea dough and a sweet bean paste filling. Quick to make and simple, though working with the dough takes some experience. Makes approximately 15 daifuku.

Recipe Ingredients for Microwave green tea daifuku (mochi)

1 cup Rice Flour, White
1/4 cup Sugars, Granulated
15 serving Organic Matcha - Green Tea Powder, Organic
1 tbsp Potato Starch
5 serving (Welpac) Tsubu-an: Sweet red bean paste 3 tbsp.

Recipe Directions for Microwave green tea daifuku (mochi)

  1. Mix 1 cup glutinous rice flour, 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup sugar, and approximately 1/8 cup matcha in a microwavable bowl.

  2. Microwave this for about 2 minutes, until the dough starts to inflate-- it will start sinking when you take it out of the microwave. While it's nuking, dust a cookie sheet and a rolling pin with potato starch or cornstarch.

  3. Dump the dough onto your starched cookie sheet. Dust your hands. Dust the rolling pin again. Dust everything. Mochi is very very sticky when it's hot.

  4. Roll out the dough with the rolling pin and divide it into about 15 pieces.

  5. Roll the bean paste into balls. Put a ball in the centre of each piece of mochi and fold the dough up around the bean paste. Pinch it to seal it shut.

  6. To get a nice, even round shape, roll the daifuku between your palms a bit after you seal it up. You have to work fast because as mochi cools it gets less sticky so it won't seal to itself and your daifuku will fall apart.
