Mochi recipe (help needed)

Mochi with a plum filling (yet another recipe I’ve been working on from time to time).

The recipe so far:

  • Greek Yoghurt (FLV) 0.5%
  • Kinako Soy (FLV) 0.25%
  • Marshmallow Vanilla (FLV) 1%
  • Plum (INW) 1%
  • Pomegranate (FA) 1%
  • Sweet Rice (FE) 4%

The plum filling part is ok but not ideal (seems difficult to steer away from a grape vibe with plum concentrates). The texture is the trickiest part. It needs to be gummy/chewy yet starchy and dry.
Any feed-back would help.

Did you try Starch Base FLV?
I would run it from .12% to .4% and see how that will work…

@SmokyBlue thanks for the reply. I have tried Starch Base FLV at 0.25% and it did up the starch level already present in Sweet Rice FE.
I’m aiming to get that chewy full mouth feel that one would get in the actual dessert
I’ve never tried Yam FLV. Would that be in the right direction?

The Vanilla Pudding FLV works better for me to get that full mouth feel, not so much chewy, but full. Maybe try that instead of the MV ?
I push the VP up to 1.2 - 1.4 , not sure what a Mochi is but Graham Cracker FLV low maybe .4 or less will help with texture :ok_hand:

@Rocky02852 thanks for chiming in Rocky. Not tried it with FLV Pudding and will sub it for marshmallow.
Thinking about it, I also need it to be somewhat powdery and dry. The real question is, can all these be achieved in one recipe - Gummy, chewy, dry, powdery, thick, starchy, sticky?
*Edit - not to mention having the ability to pick up these notes :crazy_face:

Id keep the mm vanilla @PAPACHiGLY

What is a mochi:

Looking at this… I am not sure on the FE sweet rice, if anything I would just drop it from the recipe…
I would sub graham cracker flv in its place at .2% - .4%

Unsure if I would go with a plum pomegranate mix… I would work on the base mix first.

If I did anything, I would think on apricots, figs and persimmons…

VT rice base can support the FE sweet rice.

I have no clue how one would add “chewy”. Interesting thread. I only just solo’d FE’s Sweet Rice, and it does cut the mustard in regards to ricey rice.

HeHe, @PAPACHiGLY, the question of the week (or year) if you can hit all those notes, I’ll be the first to buy All the flavors and mix it up :ok_hand:
I was recently was reading some notes about a “crunchy” flavor , I don’t get crunchy in any liquid :man_shrugging:

Thanks for the input :pray: I’m gonna get smoke plum (INW) and/or try with apricot/fig. I imagine a darker sweet paste filling.

INW. Smoked Plum is an especially good flavor for sure. I’m not sure if it would work here though and am very curious to find out what you do with it and how it works. Since you are gonna grab some Inawera (w makes a V sound) you might think about grabbing Miss Cream and I think you will like the mouthfeel and it will work quite well for the dessert portion also. Personally, I have yet to come up with an outstanding recipe using Miss Cream. I say that but I have only made 3 and 2 were vapable IMO and one not, I did put some FA. MTS Vape Wizard in it and that just might make it decent. I hope so because I haven’t tossed a recipe in quite a while (probably because I don’t create a lot).

just in case you are interested, I made a short video about miss cream. I did one on the smoked plum too but I’ll just leave the miss cream below. Well, a link to the link anyway
INW. Miss Cream GOOD LUCK man. Hopefully, you will crack the code.

@Dan_the_Man Thank you Dan. I’m actually putting (another) Inawera shopping list together and Miss Cream is on it. I was intent on using it as a building block for an ice cream pudding type thing.

Marshmallow or MM Vanilla will… if it sits long enough… a week+

thing is… mochi is normally like pastells… they are light… almost like a funky marshmallow…
I dont see how any “dark” flavors would work with something meant to be light… but one can try…
never know unless you did. :slight_smile:

I personally like the green tea ones… well not really a green tea… they are brushed with macha powder… I have a recipe somewhere for that… and I used pineapple as a base for my dessert…

@SmokyBlue You may be right about dark fruits. I guess it’ll naturally turn the whole recipe dark.
I may aim for a sweet bean paste filling. Thanks again for the input :pray:

Nice. Can’t wait to see what you come up with. If it’s good I might use it in a video if that’s ok with you. I’ll be sure to leave a link and let everyone know who created it.

By keeping the fruity aspect of it light/low it will make it more believable :slight_smile:

Good luck, Papa!! :coffee: :tada:

Although having the best of intentions, those who don’t know what mochi is like and its consistency and taste it becomes difficult to extrapolate. Being fortunate here in Raleigh we have several Asian markets and even in the frozen food section of Aldi occasionally we see some Mochi. That being said, perhaps this is another challenging Rabbit Hole worth going down and similar to our thread on orange creamsicle?

You can put me on THAT side of the table …

OMG! Mochi is like ice cream, or cake or coffee. so many varieties, and definitely some better than others. I count myself fortunate, to have access to many foods from other cultures and I sure love trying new ones. Mochi is the coolest outer wrapping around a cool filling. if you remotely have access, its worth trying !
edited. cause- I can! lmbo
