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

Optional Ingredients

Oil for cooking
1 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Sugar
Chilli Powder
Nori (Seaweed Sheet)

  1. Cook Potatoes in the boiling slated water until tender. Drain and mash until smooth, then add Cold Water and mix well.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. You can add Nori.
  5. For soup, cook in the boiling salted OR unsalted water, and add to the soup.
