Easy Hot Milk Zenzai in a Mug

Easy Hot Milk Zenzai in a Mug

You can make tho zenzai with canned boiled adzuki and bite-sized mochi.
Please try this when you're feeling a little weary or when you're craving something sweet.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Cut mochi
1 piece
Canned boiled adzuki beans
50 g
Milk or soy milk
100 ml
Condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon plus


1. Cut the mochi into sixths. Heat in a toaster oven until they plump up.
2. The mochi should plump up like this. You can also do this in a microwave, but the mochi will harden. That's why I recommend using a toaster oven.
3. While the mochi is heating up, put all the other ingredients into a mug and mix. Microwave for 1 minute to heat. (Please adjust the heating time.) Add the toasted mochi to finish.
4. How to Preserve Boiled Adzuki: Fold back the open end of the zip-bag and put the adzuki inside. Press out the air and close the bag.
5. Draw a dividing line with a chopstick, and store in a freezer. You can break a piece when you're using it to make zenzai. Put it into a mug, mix it with milk, and microwave it.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had lots of canned boiled adzuki and mochi.
If you have any leftover heavy cream, try adding it into the mug using a piping bag. As if you're drinking hot chocolate. This is also amazing.
