Mochi is sweet brown rice cooked and pounded so it is chewy/ crunchy, you can fry it /bake it, and lots more. You need to try it to believe it, it's delicious. It comes plain or in flavors like cinnamon raisin and even a brownie flavor.
1/4 of a Prepared block of mochi (available at health food stores usually near the soy cheese/ products, refrigerated section) I usually buy Grainassance brand
1/4 cup Brown Rice Syrup or Real Maple Syrup(make sure the brown rice syrup is Gluten Free- Lundberg)
1/4 cup Toasted finely minced pecans
Cut mochi in half (to make it thinner) then cut into 2 inch squares
Pan fry in a small amount of oil, you can brush on a small amount of oil. (peanut or toasted sesame) when the pan/oil is hot fry the mochi for 2-3 minutes on each side.
Dip the mochi in warm or cold brown rice syrup or maple syrup and cover with finely chopped toasted pecans.
This tastes like french toast sticks YUM!
