Mochi are stir fried in sesame oil and steeped in dashi stock. It's so juicy and fragrant.
My family often eats this hot pot. It's my mom's recipe. Add udon noodles to the broth once you finish the contents for a delicious finish. This is also really delicious with pork belly.
The key to this dish is pan-frying the mochi in sesame oil until fragrant. Make ojiya (rice porridge) with the broth at the end of cooking - it's amazingly good!
