Ingredients Serving: 6

  1. Glutinous rice flour 3/4 cup (100gm)
  2. Water 3/4 cup (180ml)
  3. Sugar 1/4 cup (55gm)
  4. Potato starch 1/2 cup
  5. Icecream of your choice (I used green tea ice cream)


  1. 1) ICE CREAM PREPARATION: Scoop out the ice cream into silicon cupcake liners and freeze immediately until completely frozen.
  2. 2) MOCHI PREPARATION: Prepare your steamer. Combine rice flour, water and sugar in a bowl. Cover the steamer lid with a towel so condensation won't drop into mochi mixture. Put the mochi bowl instead steamer and cook for 15 minutes, stirring halfway. Mochi colour should change from white to semitranslucent.
  3. 3) ROLLING: Dust the work surface with potato starch. Drop the cooked mochi and dust potatoe starch over it also. Knead it a bit.
  4. Roll into disc. Dust off excess starch. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  5. 4)ASSEMBLING: Keep the frozen ice cream ball over 1 mochi sheet. Gather and pinch the corners. Cover with plastic wraps and twist to close tightly. Freeze until firm, about 2 hrs.
