How to Make Sweet Red Bean Soup with Mochi Balls - as part of the dessert series by GeoBeats.
Hi, this is Misako Sasa from Japanese Culinary Studio and today we are making some Japanese popular sweets. One of it is using these two; I will be making oshiruko. Oshiruko is sweet bean soup. And I will be putting some small mochi balls using this one right here. It is called shiratamako. But what it is, is a rice powder and it makes a small little mochi, which is real easy to do. First of all, I am going to empty this in a bowl and just gradually add water. And with your fingertips, just keep mixing as you pour the water in. This is just about right so I keep mixing until it is nice and smooth. If you touch here, it is as soft as your earlobe. It is not too soft. It is actually a little bit stiff. You just grab a little bit and just gently roll into a ball.
After you have all of those made into these balls, you have a pot of boiling water and, just one by one, you are going to plant this into the boiling water. But before you put it in, you just squeeze the top like so. It will be a little bit flat and let it fall in. When you put the balls into the pot, it sinks to the bottom. But as it gets cooked, it floats to the surface so please wait 1 or 2 minutes after it floats to the surface and then you can just scoop them out. Now, I am ready to scoop this out like this. And have an ice bath ready so you can just plank them right in. Let them cool down and then you can drain this on a plate with a paper towel.
This has been cooling for maybe 2-3 minutes. It is nice and cold. You can just put with your hand, you can just pick this up and then just place this on the paper towel. Now we have to make sweet red bean soup, and to do that, you can make it from the scratch or you can purchase a ready-made sweet bean paste. All you have to do is just empty the contents like so. Now, this has about 2 cups of bean paste. You will be adding half of the water. So if there are 2 cups, you will be adding 1 cup of water to this one. So all you have to do is just smooth out the paste. It gradually starts to melt. Now, it starts to bubble at the edges so I can start putting the mochis back in. After you turn off the heat, you put a little pinch of salt and this will bring out the sweetness. And now, this is ready to be served.
