Ingredients

Instructions

  1. **Prepare Filling:** In a small bowl, combine grated jaggery and desiccated coconut to make the filling mixture. Set aside.
  2. **Make Mochi Dough:** In a microwave-safe bowl, mix glutinous rice flour and water until well combined. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 1 minute.
  3. **Knead Dough:** Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave and stir the dough. It should be sticky and slightly translucent. If needed, microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Then, knead the dough on a flat surface dusted with glutinous rice flour until smooth.
  4. **Divide Dough:** Divide the dough into equal-sized portions, depending on the desired size of your mochi balls.
  5. **Shape Mochi:** Flatten each portion of dough into a small circle. Place a spoonful of the jaggery-coconut filling in the center of each circle. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, pinching to seal and form a ball.
  6. **Steam Mochi:** Arrange the filled mochi balls on a steamer lined with parchment paper. Steam over medium heat for about 10-12 minutes, or until the mochi is cooked and becomes translucent.
  7. **Coat and Serve:** Once cooked, roll the steamed mochi balls in desiccated coconut to coat them evenly. Serve warm and enjoy the delicious Mochi with Jaggery and Coconut Filling!

Note

  • Glutinous rice flour (mochiko) is essential for making mochi, as it gives the dough its characteristic chewy texture.
  • Make sure to properly seal the mochi balls to prevent the filling from leaking out during cooking.
  • You can adjust the sweetness by adding more or less jaggery according to your taste preference.
  • Enjoy these mochi balls fresh, as they tend to harden when stored for too long.
