We stumbled upon a recipe recently that looked almost too good to be true – Deep-fried mochi balls with a molten chocolate centre. And the best part? The recipe is so simple. It took us approximately 10 minutes to prepare and cook these.
From the crisp exterior, to the chewy mochi outer layer, and the star of the show – oozing chocolate in the center; it is a winning combination. We are glad we tried it, and we can’t wait to share the recipe with you!
It takes pretty much no time at all to achieve these amazing bite-sized treats. Here, we present Easy Deep-Fried Mochi Recipe With Oozing Molten Chocolate Center!
1. Combine the glutinous rice flour, cornstarch (or corn flour) and water in a mixing bowl.
2. Knead it in a bowl of flat surface to form a ball of dough.
3. Grab a pingpong-size dough, create a dent with your thumb and fill it up with chocolate chips (approximately 3 to 5 pieces per mochi suffice).
4. Wrap the dough around the chocolate chips, and form into a ball. Make sure to seal well to prevent the mochi from “bursting” when frying.
5. Prepare coconut oil in a pan and fill the pan with enough oil to cover your mochi balls.
6. When coconut oil is hot enough, simmer the mochi balls inside for about a minute until the outside turns crispy.
7. Remove and set them aside for 3-5 minutes to cool down and to drain the oil.
8. Enjoy immediately after so that the chocolate still flows!
