This is a "Kinako flavored uirō mochi"(sweetened steamed mochi).
It's chewy and a great for kinako lovers!

80 g
◎Brown sugar
80 g
400 ml
a small amount
1 tablespoon


1. Place all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix very well. (I didn't have bowls available, so I used a saucepan... haha)
2. Pass the mixture from Step 1 through a strainer into a heat resistant container. Cover the mixture loosely with plastic wrap. (Or you could leave the sides uncovered like in the photo)
3. Micorwave the mixture (at 500 W) for 7-8 minutes. (The time will differ on your microwave). Poke the mochi with a toothpick and if it comes out clean, it's finished.
4. Let the dish cool on the counter, then chill it in the fridge.
5. Cut it into whatever shapes you like. You're all done!
