Ice Cream - Strawberry Mochi by saourealis Ice Cream - Strawberry Mochi by saourealis
Your Asian restaurant ice cream in strawberry, wrapped in rice. Delicious!

Edit: Apparently, I've been misinformed by restaurant employees who have tried to explain mochi to me. That's not bean paste - apparently it's rice!



Thank you, :iconmuffinstealer:, for keeping me from looking like any more of an idiot than I already did!

Omg. -Drools- I love the strawberry mochi icecreams soooo much. And the chocolate ones! :iconspazattackplz:

(Also, I would just like to add that the squishy stuff that the icecream is wrapped in is not bean paste. Bean paste is very different, it is a filling for the mochi. The outer part of the mochi is made out of rice)

Really? I've been living a lie all this time! Thanks for letting me know. Do you know how they get the rice to that texture?

They make a special type of rice called 'mochi rice' that is somewhat different from regular white Japanese rice. The way they get it to that texture is they cook it and then pound the rice down until it is sticky. (Like, taking a wooden sort of special 'hammer' and slamming that thing to delicious stickiness)

In order for them to be able to handle the rice without it sticking to the hammer and their fingers (As it gets extremely sticky), they coat it in potato starch (katakuriko). That white dust you always see on mochi is the potato starch.

However, you do not have to pound the rice from scratch. You can also just use Japanese rice flour (mochiko). It makes it much easier.

Neat! I'll have to savor my delicious rice and ice cream in the future, then.

I've never quite noticed before, but do they flavor the rice at all? I always felt like I was tasting the same flavor, faintly, there, but they could just color it and let the ice cream do the work.

Usually, regular mochi is not flavored and has no sugar in it. But for the mochi they use with the icecream, they add some sugar to sweeten it and also add flavor.

Mochi can come in all sorts of flavors, and sometimes can have bean paste, jellies, fruits, or chocolate in them. (Well, pretty much, mochi can be the flavor of anything and have almost any kind of filling, really. Kind of like jelly beans, they can be flavored as anything)

Besides mochi being used as sweet desserts, mochi can also become a savory dish or salty snack, and sometimes the rice flour (mochiko) can even be used in other cooking to create dinner dishes, such as mochiko fried fish or meat.
