What is Mochi?
Mochi is a traditional food for the Japanese New Year made of glutinous rice,
pounded into paste and molded into shape byhand.
What is traditional Japanese Mochi pounding?
The rice is soaked in water overnight and cooked in traditional wooden steamers.It requires two people to work together-one pounding the Mochiwhile the other turning andwetting the Mochi with water to prevent it from sticking to the mallet.
The Mochi is shaped by hand once the pounding process is complete.
