February 16, 2009 · Posted in Asian Treat, Cheap Eats, Dessert, Japanese Food, Pastries, Snacks, Uncategorized 

Daifuku Mochi, Japanese rice cakes, sweet little treats usually filled with red bean paste although there are variations of fruit filling. Sometimes they are covered in corn starch to keep them from sticking to each other. The two pictured are Sesame (Shiro Goma)  and Black Sesame (Kuro Goma) covered and about the size of your palm. The other version is about the size of a half-dollar coin. If you love tasty treats or love Red Bean, have a try at these, they can be found at any Japanese market and sometimes Asian supermarkets.

    I recently discovered these at the local Japanese supermarket (Mitsuwa) and they’re delicious!

    Love going to Mitsuwa! Every time I head there, I have to get the fresh Taiyaki (bean paste filled pancake in fish shape)! Which reminds me, I have to take pictures of this stuff.

    Do you cook these? I just bought some from Grand Market in Gaithersburg, MD and steamed one. It melted everywhere!! Are they supposed to be boiled?

    They are ready to eat as is! They are meant to be a snack right out of the package. Do not cook them!
