Story Behind this Recipe

I love milk mochi, so I made this variation using rice bran. Incidentally, you can get the same amount of vitamin B in 2 teaspoons of rice bran, as you can from 1 bowl of brown rice. This is a perfect way to include some rice bran in your diet. It was also popular with the kids.
