Ingredients: Recipe good for about 18 Durian Mochi.
- 1 cup glutinous rice flour
- 2 tablespoon wheat starch
- 1/3 sugar
- 1cup milk
- 3 pieces of durian (take out the seed)
- a pinch of salt
- some cornstarch/ potato starch for dusting
- In a small pot, mix together the glutinous rice flour, wheat starch, sugar, milk, and salt until no visible lump is seen.
- Take out the durian seed, set aside the durian paste in a small plate.
- Over medium low heat, heat up the mixture, keep stirring. The paste will start to thicken.
- Remove from heat once the mixture turns dough-like.
- Have a parchment paper ready and place on flat surface. Heavily dust the surface of the parchment paper with cornstarch / potato starch.
- Move the glutinous rice dough onto the surface. Dust the dough with cornstarch / potato starch, and start rolling it flat.
- Use a cookie cutter and cut the flatten dough into circles. On each piece use a brush and brush off excess cornstarch/ potato starch (This way when you each it, you won’t taste so starch on your mochi.) The excess dough roll up again and make more circles.
- On each pieces, place around a bite of durian paste (not too much or else the mochi will not close up) and wrap it up. Gently press the edges to seal it up.
- Dust the mochi with a little cornstarch / potato starch so it doesn’t stick together.
- Keep the mochi in the fridge if not consume immediately. Enjoy!
