Put dried mochi cakes in a generous amount of water and microwave. You just need one plate, so cleanup is easy too. The mochi becomes meltingly soft. Have some lazy cheese mochi!
When we eat mochi for New Years, I always make it like this.My mother used to make it for me when I was a child. I love it even more than I like mochi cakes in soup.
You don't have to wrap the mochi cakes in nori seaweed, and you only need 1 plate. This is easy, so you can have mochi even in the morning.In addition, by using plastic wrap the mochi won't get stuck to the plate, so cleanup is easy.
