This sweet and savory isobe mochi has the aroma of sesame oil. I came up with it since I was getting tired of my usual way of making isobe yaki (mochi with seaweed). With its subtle sweetness, it's perfect for a snack.

You can also use vegetable oil, but sesame oil is fragrant and delicious. For those who like it on the sweet side, add a little sugar to give it a mitarashi-like touch.
