Alphabe-Thursday: Letter J for Japanese cake, Mochi

Japanese Style Sticky cake or Mochi. These sticky cake is made from the sticky rice, aka glutinous which is used by Asians for their cakes. The rice is pounded to flour.

This one is made of green tea with a stuffing I think is red bean paste.

This cake is famous to the West through by the wide publicity that people choke to death from the sticky cake.

I've read about mochi but I never knew what they were.

It is quite different than I imagined.

The flavor profile would be really interesting.

Thanks for sharing.

I will give one of these a try next time I see them on a menu.
