Yomogi Mochi



Yomogi mochi is a traditional Japanese sweet which is also called "Kusa Mochi".
It is a mochi (glutinous rice cake) flavored with Japanese mugwort.
Usually it is stuffed with sweet red bean paste.
Yomogi is a Japanese herb.
It has a nice fresh fragrance.

I don't fancy the color and specs but it's interesting. I wonder how's the taste.

Love Kusa Mochi! I have only had packaged ones, though, never made at home or in a restaurant. Maybe soon. Thanks, Nobu!

DELICIOUS... Did you make it? If you did, can you please share the recipe? I have been wanting to try and make mochi.. I have mochiko and some hawaiian recipes but have not really ventured into making it, I am too scared... I can just taste the azuki while looking at the picture..delicious!

Hello Ayie, Yomogi has bitter taste, but it's fresh flaver makes red beans paste more sweet.

Laurie, Thanks for your comment.
I hope you try it!.
I think it is healthy food.

Pare i familiaku;
You have mochi-ko, you can make it.
I will show you how to make it.

I had something which I think was similar in Thailand and much to my surprise was delicious too.
