I am dead serious when it comes to claiming which fictional characters can be taken by who. This is a serious matter. No one gets away without signing a contract on whose is whose when you’re with me. The picture below the contract is reference for who we’re claiming. I never knew Dora would sneak up on me like this.
Btw I found this picture from someone else on tumblr, it’s not mine!
MOCHI! ….. Well…. an attempt to make mochi ._.
OTL I used a really wide pot for cooking the azuki beans….. worst mistake you can ever make q.q the beans were unevenly cooked *sigh* and then when I was making it into a paste it was too dry q.q thankfully my dad was able to help me and told me to add in water (at that point I facepalmed myself because that was the most obvious solution to my problem)
The outer shell of the mochi was too thick OTL but it still turned out really good so I’m okay =~=
Here is where I got the recipes from!~ :D
For the outer shell though I only got the ingredients from it, I didn’t really listen to the instructions because… well… no offence intended but I didn’t trust it ._. btw listen to the Just One Cookbook for making the Anko :D
^USE A POT THAT EXACTLY COVERS OVER YOUR HEAT CIRCLE THINGIE ON THE STOVE!!! Last thing you want is undercooked beans TT^TT and I recommend that after the beans are soft, add in an inch of water above the beans and stir on heat that is just below high :O yes it takes longer but the paste won’t be as dry :D
The outer shell for mine looks slimy because I didn’t put rice flour (or was it cornstarch?) on it so yeah…..I actually boiled mine instead because I didn’t really think putting the mixture for the outer shell in a microwave would have been safe o-o;;
I also recommend this: when putting the water into the flour and sugar mixture, put the water in little by little, so put a bit and then mix and then put a little bit again and so on. This is just so that the consistency of the flour is easier to manipulate. If you put in the water all at the same time, it’ll be lumpy and hard to manage.
ANYYWAYY~~~~ Happy Cooking~ :D and Good Luck if you try to make this o-o;; Remember, patience is a virtue.
