  • 75 g sticky rice flour
  • 20 g icing sugar
  • 60 ml of water
  • 30 ml coconut milk
  • cornstarch
  • 1 jar of cold cuts Phew! Peanut

Cook for 1 minute 30 in the microwave at 850 watts. Remove the film and quickly mix the dough with a spoon. The dough should start to thicken and become sticky. Cover again with cling film and cook again for 1 min 30. Check the texture of the dough, it should be thick and pliable. If necessary, cook for 30 seconds longer. Let the dough cool for a few minutes so you can work it without burning yourself.

Sprinkle a work surface with cornstarch and place it on your hands. Take a small ball of dough and roll it up and spread it out into a disc. Place a hazelnut of lubricant in the center of the disc and cover the dough. Roll into a ball. Repeat the process with the rest of the dough.

Place the mochis in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving.
