Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 40 mins

Total Time: 55 mins

Serves: 4


  • Mochi
  • 125 gram glutinous rice flour (Indonesian: tepung ketan)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Peanut coating
  • 1 packet (80 gram) honey roasted peanut


  1. Prepare a steamer.
  2. Oil a steamed proof bowl and set aside. The oil is there to make the mochi easier to remove from the bowl.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix together glutinous rice, sugar, and water into a smooth batter. Pour the batter into the oiled bowl.
  4. Steam the mochi for 40 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, grind the peanut in a food processor and transfer to a shallow bowl/plate.
  6. Once the mochi has finished steaming, remove from steamer. With a small oiled spoon, scoop out bite sizes of mochi and drop in the peanut to coat the mochi. Transfer the coated mochi to a serving plate and serve immediately while still warm.
