Add water and beat the dough until it is dry and smooth. After that, cover the bowl with transparent paper and put it in the microwave for two minutes. Take it out, sprinkle the mixture with a spatula and return to the microwave for another two minutes. You must repeat this process until the dough is shiny and divide it into ten parts. When it is ready, you can add coloring if you wish, although this is not essential.

For this it is advisable to use transparent paper, as this will make it easier for you to make it rounded. When the balls are ready, cover them with more cornstarch and put them in the freezer. That is when you will have your delicious homemade mochis ready to taste.
