Transform tofu into a chewy mochi texture.

Ingredients

Silken tofu
200 g
Katakuriko
60 g
Kinako (season with sugar and salt to your preference)

Steps

1. Combine the tofu and katakuriko well in a heat-resistant container (it's easiest to work with a fork).
2. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 2 minutes at 600 W.
3. Remove and stir it well.
4. Wrap it again and microwave for 2 more minutes.
5. Stir it once again. At this point, you'll realize how chewy and thick it has become.
6. Coat your hands with water and tear the tofu mochi into the size of your choice. Cover with kinako and they're done.

Story Behind this Recipe
