Mango mochi is a true masterpiece. This preparation combines the smoothness and sweetness of mango with the unique, chewy texture of Japanese mochi. In this article, we will explore how to make it. Let’s dive into its industrial recipe.

First steps to prepare mango mochi

This recipe is surprisingly simple. Almost as simple as making mango sorbet. The first thing you will need is glutinous rice, which is the base of mochi. This type of rice is high in starch and gives the sticky texture that is so distinctive to this preparation. In addition to glutinous rice, you will need ripe mango, sugar, and corn starch.

The recipe: step by step 

This treat comes together in just six steps. Here are the details:

  1. Glutinous rice preparation. First, wash the glutinous rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Then, soak it for at least four hours or overnight. After soaking, drain the excess water.
  2. Cooking the rice. Once the rice is ready, you should steam it until it is tender. This may take about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on the amount of rice you are cooking. Once cooked, allow the rice to cool slightly before continuing.
  3. Preparation of the mango purée. While the rice is cooling, prepare the mango purée. Peel and cut the ripe mangoes into chunks. Then, place them in a blender or food processor. Add a little sugar and, finally, blend until you obtain a smooth and homogeneous purée.
  4. Mixing the mochi. The next step is to mix the cooked glutinous rice with the mango purée and add more sugar. Continue mixing until all the ingredients are well incorporated and you obtain a sticky but manageable dough.
  5. Forming the mochi. Mold the mochi dough into round balls using specific molding machines. These machines can be automatic and are designed to produce mochi balls that are uniform and consistent.
  6. Cooling and packaging. Allow the freshly formed mochi balls to cool so that they maintain their proper shape and texture. Then, package them in suitable containers for distribution and sale. And that is it!
