Mochi is a Japanese rice cake made with sweet rice flour – it’s soft, squishy & chewy – the texture is like soft gummy bear & marshmallow mixed together – if you want to learn more about the laborious traditional way of making mochi, watch this cool video. If you’re a mochi lover, this Strawberry Mochi is so good, it’s hard not to eat the entire batch in a sitting! I’ve created a super simple method to make mochi in the Instant Pot, you just mix up a few ingredients and pop it into the Instant Pot to cook – you end up with perfectly soft and satisfyingly chewy homemade mochi – unless you go to a bakery that makes this fresh, making it yourself is so much better than anything that’s store bought . Using seedless strawberry jam is a simple way to flavor the mochi, you can substitute the strawberry jam with any other flavor of seedless jam using my recipe so the varieties of flavors you can make is limitless. Have these as a snack on their own or use as a topping for ice cream and shaved ice.
