2 cup Mochiko (glutinous rice powder)
1 3/4 cup warm water
1 tsp green tea powder
potato starch or maizena flour for dusting and controlling the sticky dough
red bean paste for filling or you can use any kind of filling, such nutella, peanut butter jelly if you like.
In a large bowl, mix the rice flour, sugar, green tea powder and water until smooth. You may need to use a hand blender or mixer to make sure there aren't any lumps.
Pour batter into a shallow microwavable dish and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 4 minutes. Remove dish and pull off plastic to release steam. Stir the mix until smooth again microwave again for another 3 to 5 minutes until the top is dry.
The dough will be a white sticky blob. Allow it to cool so you can handle it. In the meantime, take out your red bean paste and form teaspoon sized balls. The paste is firm enough to easily work with. In a flat dish, like a pie plate, put 1/4 cup cornstarch. Cornstarch is used to dampen the stickiness of the dough. It’s not optional — it’s required. The dough is the stickiest thing you’ll ever encounter
When the dough has cooled, scoop a golf ball sized piece of dough and drop into the cornstarch. Lightly toss to coat the outside of the ball so you can handle it. Roll the dough into a ball, then flatten to form a 3″ circle. Place the red bean paste in the center and pinch edges together to seal. Roll the ball in the cornstarch once again, then roll between the palms of your hands to create a ball shape.
