Flip the 'crust' over many times to prevent it from burning. Form a round shape by pressing down hard with a spatula.
Mash the avocado into a paste, spread on the mochi, and sprinkle with garlic powder.
Cut up the ☆ ingredients so that they're easy to eat, and place on the cooked mochi base from Step 4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper → cheese → herbs in that order. Cover with a lid, and cook in the pan for 7 ~ 8 minutes.
The crispy, chewy crust is so good.
