Buy Japanese Mochi Online

Served on a broad spectrum of styles from sweet to savory, Japanese rice cakes are made from chewy, glutinous rice. Better known as “mochi” in Japan, mochi Japanese rice cakes are made from pounding short-grain rice to become sticky, soft and stretchy.

Originally introduced to Japan from China, mochi has since become a culinary specialty in Japanese culture. Being made from Japan’s staple ingredient of short grain rice, mochi is humble as it is significant. With traditional ties to Japanese New Year and other auspicious occasions such as weddings, mochi isn’t any old ingredient. It’s versatile, and can be used across a number of Japanese dishes, and Japanese rice cake flavors vary depending on prefectures with their local ingredients and different production methods. Factory manufactured mochi and handmade mochi can both be delicious, yet they are miles apart when it comes to texture and usage in Japanese cuisine.

The term mochi comes from the Japanese onomatopoeia phrase “mochi-mochi,” which describes its pleasantly chewy texture. This textural Japanese ingredient can be divisive, but some people say mochi is best served freshly pounded. Fresh Japanese mochi is characteristically gooey, stretchy, and chewy. Have a sweet tooth? Freshly pounded mochi with a sprinkle of kinako (sweet soy bean powder) and a bitter sip of Japanese green tea makes for a delicious traditional dessert. Big blobs of daifuku mochi are a common type of sweet Japanese mochi you can buy from convenience stores, supermarkets, and street stall vendors. Mochi is a versatile ingredient that’s also used for a range of traditional and contemporary Japanese desserts. For example, check out our mochi donut recipe to learn how to make delicious, spongy mochi donuts! Need to find out where to buy mochi in your home country so you can make this dessert? Look no further, simply buy mochi online and browse through our many options right here on byFood. You can enjoy delicious mochi that’s soft and stretchy, filled with delicious red bean or matcha (green tea) paste at home.

Undoubtedly, Japanese mochi can be one of the best souvenirs from Japan, or the most delicious and satisfying taste of nostalgia for anyone missing the land of the rising sun. Forgot to pick some up at the airport? Don’t worry, whatever flavor you fancy, you can buy rice cake from Japan when you shop online at byFood. We have an extensive range of sweet and savory mochi options, perfect for giving as a gift or cooking up yourself in your own Japanese feast. Nothing beats fresh mochi, but these versatile Japanese rice cakes can also be dehydrated for boiling and eating later. For those who prefer savory mochi, plain Japanese rice cakes can be used in traditional soups like oden or boiling in a nabe (hotpot) dish, or even grilled over an open flame. This type of mochi is best served then dipped in soy sauce and wrapped in a crispy sheet of nori (dried seaweed).
