I love Mochi, but they are expensive to buy and it’s not easy to make. That’s why I have created some easy recipes. This is another very easy recipe to make savoury type Mochi. I’ve got an idea from Gnocchi. Instead of Wheat Flour, I added Glutenous Rice Flour to mashed Potatoes. It’s so simply to make. *Note: You might be interested in ‘Easy Potato Mochi’ that you can make with Corn Starch OR Potato Starch.
2 to 4 Servings
2 medium Potatoes *about 300g, OR 1 cup Mashed Potatoes
Salt for cooking Potatoes
1 tablespoon Cold Water
1/4 cup Glutinous Rice Flour
Extra 3 to 4 tablespoons Glutinous Rice Flour
Oil for cooking
1 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Sugar
Nori (Seaweed Sheet)
- Cook Potatoes in the boiling slated water until tender. Drain and mash until smooth, then add Cold Water and mix well.
- Add 1/4 cup Glutenous Rice Flour and mix well. Then add extra Glutenous Rice Flour gradually, and mix well. Form the mixture into balls or discs.
- Cook in a lightly oiled frying pan over low heat until both sides are browned. If the edges are not well cooked, add 2 to 3 tablespoons Water and cover with a lid to steam-cook. When cooked, drizzle over with the mixture of Soy Sauce, Sugar and Chilli Powder, turn Mochi cakes over and coat them evenly.
- You can add Nori.
- For soup, cook in the boiling salted OR unsalted water, and add to the soup.
Hello! I’ve been thinking of making some of these, and I’ve seen some people put things like cheese in them. Do you have any recommendations for things to use as filling?
Hi Andrew. Thank you for asking me. Unfortunately I don’t have any recommendations. I prefer Potato Mochi with no filling. Though it is a very western twist, Mochi with cheese filling could be yummy.
Cheese imo-mochi is apparently very popular in Hokkaido! But I’m the same, I prefer them without filling too.
I also am here because my pokemon loving son asked if we could make potato mochi. We will be trying it!
Hello, my mochi is breaking apart when I remove from the pan. Do you have any idea what am I doing wrong.? =(
Hello Sookyee. Thank you for trying this recipe. It can be the issue of Glutinous Rice Flour. OR the amount of the Flour is not enough if your mochi broke because it was too soft. In that case, you should add more Glutinous Rice Flour. Some people use Potato Starch Flour instead, but I don’t know how much to add. Mashed Potato patties can be cooked this way, so it is hard to think of patties breaking apart. Try again and let me know the result.
Thank you for your reply Hiroko. That could be it, not enough glutinous rice flour maybe? I used microwave to cook the potato instead of boiling it. I don’t know if this will affect the texture or not. I shall try again next week and update you again. Regardless, my bf still finished everything because he said the sauce taste delicious. Thank you!
When you microwave the potatoes you’re losing a lot of the moisture that you need to bond with the rice flour. If you dont have time to boil then I would add small amounts of water until the mixture form’s a soft dough
Thank you for your tips. I believe the moisture of potato is not really important for this Potato Mochi as dried leftover mashed potato can be used. The dough should be soft like mashed potato but firm enough to form into balls or discs.
Cook in a frying pan if you are going to dress with the sauce. For soup, boiling is the best.
Hello, my mochi is breaking apart when I tremble from the pan. Do you have any idea what am I doing wrong.? =(
Might be a dumb question but does the rice need to be cooked before step 2?
Sorry I am an utterly dumb fool in a kitchen XD
It’s Flour. You make dough with it. You cook the dough in Method 3. I wish if I could show you how to make them.
Hello Everyone. This is amazing! Pokemon game led so many of you to this recipe page, and some of you actually made Potato Mochi. Hope you enjoyed them.
Hello! Yes! I am here because my grandson loves to play Pokemon and asked me for potato mochi. I told him that I would look up the recipe and here I am! Thank you so very much for this easy recipe. I will be subbing all purpose wheat flour as I have no rice flour. I am sure that it will be awesome. Thanks, again!
Thank you for the comment, Linda. Some people use Starch Flour such as Potato Starch and Corn Starch. Starch make more rubbery texture than Wheat Flour. Good luck with your first attempt to make Potato Mochi.
is pokemon legends arceus
Made this today and it was really good. I added a little more sugar than it called for. Used mochiko and russet potatoes
Yep I was so interested in what potato mochi tasted and looked like after a few times of eating it in the game.
Thanks Pokémon arceus for bringing us all here! Haha
Hahaha yep literally why I’m here.
Lol I’m here cuz in the new pokemon legends arceus the protagonist eats potato mochi on a regular basis and I was curious to see what it is. I think I will try to make this sometime.
Let me get on this train too lol
Exactly the same reason I’m here!
And I as well!
I believe anyone here now is because of the game
yep! I have the game it’s fun!
I’m Also Going to Try the Mochi
Me too! Such a nice website to find 🙂
