Daifuku (大福: literally "great luck") is a traditional Japanese confectionery (和菓子 wagashi). It is a mochi (glutinous rice cake) stuffed with anko (azuki - red bean paste).
Ichigo (strawberry) daifuku is a rice cake with strawberry and red bean paste filling.
In this tutorial, I will show you how to make Ichigo Daifuku using Kiri-mochi (square pieces of rice cake, packed individually). I'm sure you can get Kiri-mochi at Azian grocery stores :D
Ichigo Daifuku (Strawberry Mochi Rice Cake)
Number of servings: 6
3 (150g) Kiri-Mochi (square pieces of rice cake)
3 tbsp. sugar (or use sugar substitute)
3 tbsp. water
100g Tsubu-An (red bean paste with skin of beans)
Mochitoriko *Katakuriko (potato starch) or corn starch is okay
1. Divide Tsubu-An (red bean paste with skin of beans) into 6 portions and wrap the strawberries.
2. Put Kiri-Mochi, sugar, and water in a microwavable glass container. Lightly cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 3 minutes at 500w.
3. When the mochi is done, use wooden spatula or rice paddle and knead. Lift up and mix until water dissolves.
4. Place Mochitoriko flour in a flat container, dust the mochi and divide it into 6 portions.
5. Flatten down a piece of mochi, put the bean paste in the center, and pinch to close.
Microwave Cooking Safety
Microwaved mochi gets hard quickly, so eat as soon as you make!!!
