Assalamualaikum! Konichiwa! Hello!
Have you ever heard about a food called 'Mochi'?
"Mochi (餅) is a Japanese rice cake made of glutinous rice (not to be confused with gluten) pounded into paste and molded into the desired shape..." - (Wikipedia)
Usually we can see that Mochi is widely used to make desserts. How about we try to eat Mochi in a different way? Kekekekekeke ^^
You can get the Mochi Block from any supermarket, especially the one that is located in an international location such as Mont Kiara, KLCC, One Utama and etc.
Have you tried to eat the 'Mochi Pizza' ?
It's easy and fun to make!
4 blocks of Mochi
2 slices of Chicken Sandwich Cold Cut (slice it)
2 tablespoon of pitted Black Olive (slice it thinly)
4 tablespoon of Ketchup
1/2 teaspoon of dried Oregano leaves
A few slices of Capsicum (optional)
A few slices of Onions (optional)
3 tablespoon of grated Mozzarella Cheese
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1)Firstly, cut the Mochi block for about 1cm each (no need to be too accurate).
2)Heat up the non-stick frying pan with the vegetable oil. Make sure the heat is medium heat.
3)Place the sliced Mochi on the frying pan accordingly (as picture below). Always keep an eye on the Mochi so that it will not get burn.
4)Sprinkle some water and cook it until the Mochi slices have merge together and turn golden in colour. Water will help the Mochi to melt.
5)At the side of the frying pan, cook the sliced onions and capsicum until it is tender.
6)While waiting for the Mochi to cook, mix the ketchup with the oregano leaves. Once the pizza Mochi base is ready, spread the mixed ketchup on the Mochi (as picture below).
7)After that, place the cooked capsicum and onions on the Mochi pizza base, follow by the sliced Chicken Sandwich Cold Cut, sliced pitted Black Olive. Lastly, put the grated Mozzarella Cheese on top of everything. Cover it with a lid and let it cook on the frying pan for awhile.
8)Bake the Mochi in the pre-heat oven of 180C for about 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has fully melted. You can also use the microwave by setting the timer for about 2 minutes or as long as the cheese has fully melted.
Trust me, this Mochi Pizza is easy, fun and hassle-free to prepare!
It looks so YUMMY right? Kyaaaaa!!~~~ Hehehehe
