If you like mochi (regular mochi, not ice cream mochi), try pan frying it for a delicious crispy texture. It can be gooey like a toasted marshmallow but so, so delicious.
You cook it kind of like you would a pancake. Heat a non-stick skillet with a neutral oil until it gets hot (but not hot-hot), then turn down to medium-low heat. Place the mochi in the pan and don’t move it. The mochi will “melt” a bit and it will get a crispy bottom. Once it’s crispy, carefully flip it and crisp up the other side. Remove from the pan and eat carefully because the sugars get super hot. YUM! Enjoy.
