How do you make mochi ?

  • Put the rice in a deep recipient ( salad bowl ) then cover it completely with water. To wash it, stir 40 times with your hands. Empty the water then rinse abundantly until the water is clear. Then soak the rice in cold, clear water for one night.
  • Strain well and put in a cloth, then put it at  the bottom of a saucepan to be steam cooked ( spread the rice evenly ).
  • Cook over a hot heat for 20 to 30 minutes making sure the rice doesn't dry out. Add water if this seems to be happening.
  • Once cooked, let it stand for about ten minutes.
  • Pour into a solid recipient, pound with a pestle until you have a smooth, sticky dough, a bit firmer than that for bread.



To make mochis, take some sticky rice dough and roll out small balls with your hands ( 3 cm in diameter) or roll it out flat and cut into small squares.

Perfect combination : 

Eat your mochis with :

  • kinako ( roasted soya powder) and sugar
  • dark liquid sugar
  • sweet red bean paste
  • sesame seed powder and sugar
  • sweet soy sauce ( for this roll them in a small nori leaf)
  • or drop them ino a vegetable soup



Here are 2 simple and delicious recipes:

  • Ingredients : 100 % sticky rice
  • Packaging : 1 kg net vacuum packed sachet
  • Storage : Ideally keep cool to retain the taste and aroma. On reception empty the sachet into a sealed container and keep in the vegetable tray in the refrigerator
  • Origin : Yamagata, Japan
In the heart of Yamagata prefecture can be found a specialist in the selection and sale of the best in Japanese rice, renowned all over the world for its exceptional quality: Marushichi. Since 1844 it has been working with three hundred handpicked farmers, real rice craftsmen who grow and work their rice by hand with total respect for traditional methods.

Exceptional secret
Yamagata rice is such a delicacy because it benefits from the best possible conditions to develop, from sowing to harvest. In the Iide region, where the silica rich soil is particularly fertile, the paddy fields have an ideal climate and an extremely pure water source in the Mogami river which irrigates them. The result : Yamagata rice selected by Marushichi is of an extraordinary quality, resistance, homogeneity and whiteness.
