This is a super easy recipe for bite-sized okara mochi with ketchup and cheese.

Ingredients: Easy-to-make amount (about 15 pieces)

Fresh okara
100 g
4 tablespoons
Grated cheese
1 tablespoon
Processed cheese
20 g
about 1 tablespoon
Parsley (dried)
as needed

1. Spread the okara in a microwave-safe dish and microwave for 2 minutes. Once it cools down, add the katakuriko, grated cheese, salt and 100 ml of water (not listed) and mix well. Divide the mixture into 15 equal portions and shape into balls, then flatten to make 4 cm diameter flat round shapes. Heat oil in a skillet and pan-fry over medium heat.
2. Cook them for about 5 minutes, flip them over and squeeze some ketchup on top of each.
3. Divide the cheese into 15 equal portions and lay on top of each mochi. Turn off the heat, cover the skillet and leave for 1-2 minutes.
4. Transfer to a plate and garnish with parsley.

Story Behind this Recipe

My children love shaping the okara into round dango (dumplings) and squeezing ketchup on the mochi. These were plots to make my children like okara.
