I made this for dessert ! Mango Mochi …I can’t believe it after having such a heavy dinner…well I could not resist making this for I love anything mango. I know that mango is best eaten fresh but at times we have to be more innovative and creative..ahem but I have been wanting to make this , since the day I stumbled upon this mango goodness mochi :) Sorry, I can’t remember where I stole this recipe from :p ,anyway thanks to the owner of this recipe…it could be from one of your blog :p It is easy and needs no professional skill. I still have a few mangoes left in the fridge drawer so I might as well try this recipe out. Mmmmm not bad, it is soft, fragrant and it taste good. A good after dinner dessert…chilled it before serving. It taste better chilled :) Take note, I did not microwave it but I steamed it for 20 minutes instead.
soft and malleable ....a bit tricky here,
handle gently and shaped into a ball,
coated with fresh grated coconut
melts in the mouth mango mochi
with the after taste of coconut goodness !
sweet mango bits filling...Mmmm yummy!
1 cup of glutinous rice flour
180 ml mango juice
¼ cup of castor sugar
½ mango – cut into tiny cubes
grated coconut for dusting/coating
1. In a porcelain bowl, combine flour, juice and sugar. Stir to mix well.
2. Cover with a cling wrap and microwave for 2 mins. Remove and stir well. Return to microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir-well and check for doneness. If not put it back for another 30 seconds, be careful not to burn it. In most cases, the first 30 seconds after the initial 2 mins should be enough.
3. Flour the working surface with coconut and use a spoon to drop a ball of mochi on top and quickly cover it with coconut. Wrap the mango inside and cover with more coconut. Shaped into balls. Moisten if necessary to close the edges, Pop in your mouth and enjoy!
Note: Chill it for 1/2 hour before serving :))
Have a delicious day!
